GreenPower Motor Co. again vowed to make electric buses in South Charleston, during a Wednesday ceremony attended by local politicians and media members.

A crowd of about 30, excluding a healthy media contingent, listened as GreenPower spokesman Mark Nestlen laid out the basics: The company will take possession of the Motor City Industrial building sometime in August; hopefully employ 100 workers by the end of the year, with an expected 200 by the end of 2023; and produce about 50 buses a month by the end of 2023. The company has promised 900 jobs eventually.
