Faraday Future, a new electric vehicle startup company based in Gardena, Calif., plans to produce their vehicle at a production plant in North Las Vegas because the area offers expansive development space, an encouraging tax environment, close proximity to their California headquarters, and nearby access to Las Vegas for plant tours.

The plant will be positioned on the south end of the “electric highway,” a stretch of U.S. Route 95 between Reno and Las Vegas that is populated with a large network of vehicle charging stations, according to a Dec. 9 release.

Faraday Future is ready to invest $1 billion into the first phase of the facility, which will be built in Clark County’s APEX Industrial Park and includes a 3-million-square-foot workshop.
