Canoo secures Oklahoma City manufacturing facility

Canoo will initially occupy close to 500,000 square feet, with the ability to expand.

Canoo Inc. has entered into a long-term lease agreement with an affiliate of AFV Partners for its recently-announced vehicle manufacturing facility in Oklahoma City. Canoo will initially occupy close to 500,000 square feet, with the ability to expand. In phase 1, Canoo says it expects to employ more than 500 people, ramping teams over the coming months.

An existing commercial site with room for expansion on more than 120 acres, Canoo’s Oklahoma City manufacturing facility will support a full general and final vehicle assembly line, robotics, a body shop, paint shop and an automated paint line including e-coat and sealing, quality control, complete vehicle testing, validation and more. With an existing training center, and test track, the facility is located within easy proximity to road, rail, and waterways, making it ideal for sophisticated supply chains and manufacturing, the company says.

This facility will be powered by OG&E and has the flexibility to incorporate renewable energy. Canoo’s recently-announced Pryor facility includes renewable energy sources powered by GRDA.
