Scout Motors Inc. has plans to build a new manufacturing plant in Blythewood, South Carolina, where it will produce all-electric trucks and SUVs. More than 200,000 electric vehicles will be produced at the 1,100-acre facility, and the company’s $2 billion investment will also create 4,000 new jobs for the area. Production is schedule to begin by the end of 2026.
In a recent quote, President and CEO of Scout Motors Scott Keogh said, “We’re honored to partner with South Carolina to usher in this new era for Scout. Scout has been an American icon since introducing an SUV in 1960. It's the vehicle that took your family on a camping trip, that gave access to the great outdoors, and that showed up on the job site every morning. Today, we’re reimagining Scout’s original ingenuity and electrifying its future. We’re bringing the Scout spirit to South Carolina and it's going to be a hell of a ride.”
