Advanced Technology Vehicles: One Million by 2015

 
One million advanced technology vehicles are scheduled to be on the roads by 2015
 

Vice President Biden took the “White House to Main Street Tour” to Greenfield, Indiana, and visited manufacturer Ener1, Inc, with the plan of bringing one million advanced energy vehicles to U.S. roads by 2015.  Ener1, Inc, produces advanced lithium-ion battery systems for electric vehicles, grid energy storage, and industrial electronics.

"As you heard President Obama say last night, this Administration is forging a new path forward by making sure America doesn't just lead in the 21st Century, but dominates in the 21st Century," says Vice President Biden. "We're not just creating new jobs-but sparking whole new industries that will ensure our competitiveness for decades to come-industries like electric vehicle manufacturing."

Ener1, Inc, was awarded a $118.5 million grant from the Department of Energy to expand production of advanced batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles.  The grant will allow the 336 worker operation to expand to over 1000 by the start of 2013, bringing advanced technology vehicles to the forefront of industry operations.
