GreenTech Automotive

GreenTech Automotive (GTA) is a U.S.- based automotive manufacturer dedicated to developing and producing 100% electric vehicles. It is a subsidiary of WM Industries Corp.

History

GTA was founded in 2009 by Charles Wang.[citation needed] In May 2010, GTA acquired Hong Kong based EuAuto Technology and its Mycar vehicle, and relocated the company's operations and manufacturing to the United States. GTA's first manufacturing facility was temporarily in Horn Lake, Mississippi.

The company merged with VL Automotive in 2014,[1] developing a traditionally powered version of the Fisker Karma[2] called the WM Destino.

In September 2014, GTA completed construction on a new production facility in Tunica County, Mississippi. This was shut down in January 2017.[3]

The company declared bankruptcy in February 2018.[4][5]
