Advertiser Staff

CT&T Co., a Korea-based maker of electric vehicles that's expanding to the U.S., will detail its plans for the Hawai'i during a press conference with Gov. Linda Lingle this afternoon.

CT&T earlier this year introduced three models at the North American International Auto Show, saying it wants to manufacturer the cars at various sites around the country.

Its offerings include the E-Zone Plus, a two-passenger vehicle that has a top speed of 45 mph and a range of 75 miles. Other models include a sports car that has a top speed of 95 mph, an amphibious four-seater, and utility and golf course vehicles.
