MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) — A subsidiary of a China-based automaker has unveiled two new electric sport-utility vehicles it plans to build in northern Indiana.
SF Motors officials showed off the crossover SUVs, called the SF5 and SF7, on Wednesday at the company's Santa Clara, California, headquarters.
Both vehicles will have a roughly 300-mile range.
SF Motors is a subsidiary of China-based automaker Sokon Industry Group. It purchased a former AM General plant last year in Mishawaka with plans to invest $30 million in upgrading the plant.
The South Bend Tribune reports the plant will have an annual assembly capacity of 50,000 vehicles.
The new SUVs will be made in Mishawaka and in Chongqing, China. Both of those plants will handle full production of the vehicles, from body welding to battery production and final assembly.
