Think! in Indiana

With its pool of trained autoworkers, infrastructure and supply base for automotive building, Indiana is a great place to make cars.

Think!, which makes the EV called the City, thinks so, anyway. So they're planning to open up shop in Elkhart, Indiana and begin producing 20,000 vehicles a year by 2013.

The little European company has been producing City cars for the world market and plans to introduce them into North America via this Indiana-based facility.

And so ...

Other EV makers have also been eying Indiana with its repertoire of shuttered facilities and cheap land prices.
