Caddo Parish -- Elio Motors continues to inch closer to manufacturing their vehicles in Caddo Parrish.

The automaker announced this morning a manufacturing timeline is in place, after The Caddo Parrish Industrial Development Board finalized their purchase of the former Shreveport General Motors Plant last week.

"This has been an extremely exciting week not just for me personally, but for the entire Elio Motors team. We've had an incredible amount of momentum which has led us to a new plant that will be the foundation for building the new vehicle," said Paul Elio, CEO and founder of Elio Motors. "Acquiring this plant and all of the equipment in a fully operational state will allow Elio Motors to thrive right off the bat once commercial vehicle production begins in 2015."

Paul Elio says he expects to begin commercial vehicle production in the first quarter 2015, with hiring at the facility starting in the fourth quarter of this year.
