Bright Automotive is “showing a bit of leg” with its new plug-in hybrid vehicle, which should be available in model year 2013. This picture, teaser though it may be, is a world exclusive.
If all goes well and the company is fully funded (a big if), it will produce 30,000 cars in its first year, ramping up to a capacity of 50,000. The factory location is yet undecided, but it could be in Indiana, where many of the EV-1’s innovations were developed.
