MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A group of Chinese investors plans to
construct a large-scale plant to manufacture hybrid automobiles in
northern Baldwin County near Mobile.
Gov. Bob Riley and the chairman of H.K Motors, Yung "Benjamin"
Yeung said the company is expected to begin operations in 2013 and
will create more than 5,000 jobs.
Yeung said the company chose Alabama for the project because of
the strength of the state's economy.
He said the company will manufacture environmentally friendly
vehicles that will use a hybrid engine. The engine will use natural
gas, electricity and gasoline.
Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz and Honda currently have vehicle assembly
plants in Alabama.
