New EV manufacturer to open shop in Rock Hill, SC

A start-up developer of electric transit vehicles will establish its first U.S. facility in Upstate South Carolina. The company, named Arrival, said it would invest $46 million in the “microfactory” in Rock Hill, SC.

Officials said the plant’s “cell-based” assembly method and in-house components, materials, and software — unlike a conventional automotive production line — would allow Arrival workers to produce any of the company’s vehicles.
