Prep work for all-electric EQ SUV will start with retooling

To prepare for production of its all-electric EQ SUV, Mercedes-Benz announced a $1 billion investment Thursday into its Tuscaloosa manufacturing hub. Mercedes reports the planned expansion will create 600 new jobs for the region. This sizeable investment will be spent on three different areas, beginning with retooling and reworking portions of the primary plant in preparation for the forthcoming EQ model. This will be the first all-electric SUV from the automaker, and one of the first products of the new EQ sub-brand. – Motor Trend

Kay Ivey was asked whether she feels Alabama is in a good position to attract the Toyota Mazda plant. Her answer could be translated as 'y'all come." – AL.com
