Why EV Manufacturers Are Choosing the Southeast

Industry Today

  • June 30, 2023

Sam Moses and Bruce Thompson of Parker Poe, along with Azad Khan of Parker Poe Consulting, wrote in Industry Today about electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers making investments in the Southeast. 

"As the EV market continues to grow, midsize and fast-growing metropolitan areas like Columbia, South Carolina, have recently caught the attention of manufacturers," they wrote. "In the past year, there have been a variety of large economic development deals announced in states like North and South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee involving companies in the EV space. They are attracted to the region because it positions them within a robust automotive supply chain, with access to a talented workforce, and with tax policies and financial incentives that reduce the cost of doing business."

"By studying those factors and considering other best practices for new investments," they continued, "EV manufacturers can expedite their site selection searches and hit the ground running in their new communities."
