Germany’s Next.e.Go Mobile will invest 100 million euros to produce electric cars in Greece. A factory will be built in about two years while the investment will create 1,000 direct jobs and about 5,500 indirect jobs. The plant will be able to manufacture up to 30,000 electric vehicles a year while operating with domestic manpower.
