MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana factory that once produced Hummers will be churning out electric vehicles later this year. The South Bend Tribune says Electric Last Mile Solutions plans to make light-duty delivery vehicles in Mishawaka in the third quarter.

The company says it has more than 45,000 orders for a van that can go about 150 miles on a charge. Employment could reach 100 people by the end of the year. The factory is the former AM General plant, which produced the gas-guzzling Hummer H2.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered up to $10 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in conditional training grants.
