January 3rd, 2022 · Leave a Comment

Cenntro Automotive, a leading EV technology company with advanced, market-validated commercial vehicles, has selected Jacksonville for its first U.S. based manufacturing facility.

The Jacksonville City Council unanimously approved the economic development deal on December 14th for the proposed 100,000-square-foot facility to support the Company’s production of its vehicle lines, with a possible expansion to support additional vehicles and a battery packing operation. When fully operational, the facility is expected to create up to 34 new jobs including research and development specialists, highly skilled technician positions and administrative support. The new facility will support annual production levels of over 50,000 vehicles within four years as well as assembly, quality and testing processes, parts warehouse, distribution and administrative functions. Cenntro Automotive expects to invest $25 million in the facility and to begin assembling vehicles in the first quarter of 2022.

Cenntro will use JAXPORT to import materials for the production of vehicles, and use the port to export some of the finished vehicles to partners and clients across the globe.

Cenntro Automotive’s product portfolio includes Class 1 – Class 4 vehicles in addition to off-road offerings. Cenntro currently distributes vehicles in over 30 countries to target customers, which include corporate fleets (i.e., utilities companies), medium and small companies (i.e., small processing facilities, farms, solar farms, resorts, planned communities, etc.), as well as both state and federal government fleets.
