Electric vehicle maker plans new facility near Ann Arbor

LANSING, Mich. – An electric vehicle manufacturer plans to locate a research and development facility in the Ann Arbor area.

Gov. Rick Snyder announced Thursday that SF Motors Inc. will establish the facility in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township, creating 150 jobs and spending more than $10.7 million.

SF Motors, which is headquartered in the San Francisco area, is a subsidiary of auto manufacturer and supplier Sokon Industry Group in China. Snyder made the announcement as he finished the sixth day of his trade trip to China.

The state is providing a $1 million incentive. It says Michigan was chosen over sites in other states.
