Electric car plant announced for Webster City

WEBSTER CITY (KWWL) -- An electric car plant may be built in Webster City which would add up to 300 jobs to the area.

Webster City and AMS Inc., a new division of Eagle Manufacturing, jointly announced the signing of a contract with Envision Motor Company of Ames on Monday.

The companies will build a new line of all-electric cars in Webster City under the "Electric Motor Cars" brand and logo.

Company officials say the deal will initially create 50 jobs, with up to 300 expected by the second quarter of next year.

The announcement is good news for Webster City because it has been preparing for the closing of an Electrolux plant early next year.
