CONNERSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A company planning to build high-tech police cars in a vacant eastern Indiana auto parts factory says it has a second vehicle that it plans to produce in Indiana.
Carbon Motors Corp. on Monday announced it will begin producing a multi-mission vehicle called the TX7 before it begins production of E7 police cars at a vacant former Visteon plant in Connersville.
Company spokesman Stacy Dean Stephens tells The Connersville News-Examiner Carbon will assemble the smaller vehicle somewhere in Indiana but it's not certain yet whether Connersville gets the work.
The Energy Department rejected Carbon's bid for a $310 million federal loan in March, stalling E7 production.
Connersville public works board agreed Friday to give an undisclosed buyer of the plant until March 31 to close the $4 million deal.
