The EV-dedicated plant will have 109,600 square meters (1,180,000 square feet) of production area floor space for producing and assembling gears, inverters and the company’s E-Axle traction motor system. Production is to begin in October of 2023, and the company says the plant will have an annual production capacity of 1 million E-Axles by fiscal year 2024.
