Canoo plans to build a battery module manufacturing facility at MidAmerica Industrial Park in Pryor, Oklahoma. Once built, the facility will be capable of producing approximately 3,200 MWh worth of battery modules per year.
Canoo selected the location due to its proximity to a facility owned by battery cell partner Panasonic, and to Canoo’s future Mega-Micro factory. The facility will be powered by hydroelectricity from the Grand River Dam Authority.
Canoo’s battery campus will implement workforce training programs in partnership with the Cherokee Nation, MidAmerica, and other local training partners to provide jobs to the local community.
“We are accelerating our hiring plans in Pryor with the establishment of our EV Battery Module Manufacturing Facility, which will produce our proprietary battery modules, energy management system, and thermal control technology for our MPP platform,” said Tony Aquila, Chairman and CEO at Canoo.
