A South Korean company says Georgia is one of five states it is considering for an electric vehicle manufacturing plant. It could create 2,600 jobs over the next five years.

CT&T Company Ltd. says it plans to decide by September among sites in Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and California.

CT&T plans to build a North American headquarters, a research and development center and several manufacturing facilities, which could be spread among multiple states or consolidated on one site.

Officials say they would evaluate sites based on the presence of a skilled work force, the transportation infrastructure and the incentives offered.
