May 31, 2018—An electric vehicle startup announced Wednesday that it is retooling an Indiana factory and hopes to conduct trial runs for two new lines of vehicles, reported The Sacramento Bee.

State officials say the company, SF Motors, plans to hire back some workers who were laid off when AM general halted operations at its Mishawaka, Ind. plant last year, according to the report.

SF Motors says it will spend $160 million to buy, renovate and retool the factory. It plans to employ up to 467 workers.

The company previously showed off two crossover SUVs in March, the SF5 and SF7, at its Santa Clara, Calif. headquarters. These vehicles are slated for production at the Indiana factory.
