The City of Moreno Valley continues to lead the way in cutting-edge electric vehicle production. Karma Automotive, one of the nation’s premier electric luxury car manufacturers, has partnered with Luxembourg-based B-ON to produce electric light-commercial vehicles at their Moreno Valley facility.
The Mayor and City Council are thrilled about the partnership, and welcome B-ON to the Moreno Valley community.
“Karma has been a dedicated member of Moreno Valley’s business community for years and represents the future of luxury electric vehicles,” said Moreno Valley Mayor Ulises Cabrera. “This new partnership is estimated to create new local manufacturing jobs and places a brighter spotlight on Moreno Valley as a hub for automotive innovation. Karma’s partnership with B-ON makes Moreno Valley the only city in California boasting two EV manufacturers. The future of electric vehicle manufacturing is happening right here in Moreno Valley.”
“We are very focused on bringing new business to our state-of-the-art ISO-certified manufacturing facility, the Karma Innovation & Customization Center (KICC) in Moreno Valley,” said Jeff Wawryzniak, CEO of Karma Automotive. “Our partnership with B-ON – the electric vehicle solutions provider – will not only place Karma as a leader in the customized flexible manufacturing space but will also put the City of Moreno Valley on the global stage as an ideal environment for growth and business opportunities.”
“In Moreno Valley, we have the necessary infrastructure, talented resources, and an ever-growing market for manufacturers, and we look forward to creating good-paying jobs in the months to come as our business continues to grow,” Wawryzniak added.
Karma Automotive has based its manufacturing operations in Moreno Valley since 2015. Karma’s 555,000-square-foot Innovation and Customization Center can produce 30,000 vehicles per year. Production of B-ON’s electric delivery trucks will begin later in 2023, with full-scale production starting in 2024. Karma currently has the capacity to employ 330 people per shift during full production.
