EA-1732: Final Environmental Assessment

Loan To Next Autoworks Louisiana, LLC, For An Advanced Technology Gasoline Vehicle Manufacturing Project In Monroe, Louisiana

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is evaluating whether to issue a loan to Next Autoworks Louisiana, LLC (Next Autoworks Louisiana) – formerly V-Vehicle Company – for the production of an advanced technology gasoline-powered vehicle named the V Car. Next Autoworks Louisiana’s project would include the expansion and reequipping of a Monroe, Louisiana manufacturing plant, formerly the Guide Plant. The existing facility is 425,000 square feet, and would be increased to approximately 800,000 square feet. The U.S. Economic Development Administration, serving as a cooperating agency, would also issue a grant for infrastructure upgrades at the manufacturing plant.
