CT&T Plans Electric Car Plants for Pennsylvania
In what may be the first fruits of the G-20 Summit , or maybe just serendipity, Gov. Ed Rendell and Allegheny County Exec Dan Onorato announced that CT&T Co. Ltd., a global leader in electric vehicle technologies, will open two production and distribution facilities in Pennsylvania that will create up to 400 jobs.
CT&T makes cute, boxy low - and mid-speed electric vehicles, perfect for municipal police departments, neighborhood patrols or a jaunt to the grocery. The vehicles sell for about $12,000.
The announcement was made last week at Carnegie Mellon University, which is also working to develop new technologies for electric vehicles--lithium batteries, fuel cells, charging stations and more efficient electric motors. The company chose Pittsburgh in part for its close proximity to advanced technology companies and universities, says Onorato.
