Tbilisi: The electric car factory in Kutaisi, western Georgia, will produce its first electric car in August, said State Representative in Imereti Zviad Shalamberidze, adding that at that time the factory will also start producing additional components for cars.
Electric cars will be exported abroad as well as be sold on the local market,” said Shalamberdize.
Shalamberidze told Agenda.ge that details regarding the models [which will be produced] and the price of the cars will be specified in the coming months and become known for public [allegedly in the early Spring of 2020].
He noted that at the first stage 5,000 cars will be produced per year, but then the production capacity of the factory will increase to 40,000 cars.
Currently 300 people are employed in the factory, but later the factory plans to employ about 3,000 people.
