Volkswagen spent the past year and change hinting that its Chattanooga, Tennessee assembly plant could become ground zero for an electric American product offensive, and guess what? Thatís exactly what VW plans to do.

In a not-at-all surprising announcement, the German automaker said it plans to build electric vehicles at its only American plant, which just happens to have plenty of excess capacity. Backing up this promise is $800 million, which, in addition to funding the necessary tooling, should lead to the creation of 1,000 new jobs

Yeah. Just think how clean it’ll make the environment...producing all those electric vehicles in a plant powered by electricity that comes from a coal powered plant. Haha!

(That was a joke - I have no idea how that plant is powered.)

Haven't you seen the movie Deliverance? The TVA installed megawatts of clean hydroelectric power in Tennessee decades ago. Most of the drivetrain components will probably be made in S. Korea and shipped here for assembly anyhow.

And lots of nuclear reactors also. From what I've read it won't be producing electric cars until 2022. That is also when they are supposed to start producing the n VW bus. Meanwhile in 2020 VW is supposed to be shipping the Crozz cuv to the US, most likely from Germany asVW said that there would only be one North American plant assembling electric cars.
