So far, it has set up joint ventures to do so in Greenville, S.C., and Riverside, Calif., Westlake said. The typical RAS will employ 90 to 125 people.

OK, I'm in the dark on this one..... What/who is CT&T? Regarding "joint ventures to do so..." - To do what exactly?

Thanks

CT&T is this company: CT&T


With it come up to 400 jobs for the state, half in Pittsburgh, half in the Philadelphia area. CT&T will establish facilities that will manufacture as well as market, sell and repair the cars in other areas of the country, beginning with Greenville, S.C., and Riverside County, Calif.

Guess it's cool that G'ville will at least be at the forefront of this "green" venture.

This is great news!

A few questions, though: Why is all the coverage about Pittsburgh with only a casual mention of Greenville, but there's not a single SC-based article about them coming to Greenville?

How much does one of these cars cost? I can't find this info on their website. Are they street legal in South Carolina?

Where does one go to apply for one of these jobs? I can't find a listing anywhere, I presume it's too soon.

I agree to a certain degree, but Proterra's concept really seems smart and doable. I mean, who wants to ride around in a little nutbucket that LOOKS like an electric car? But the Proterra vehicles are full-sized, honest-to-God buses.
