LOS ANGELES – INDIEV, Inc. (“INDI EV”), a tech-forward innovator in the electric vehicle industry, announces R&D facility relocation and a $120 million deal with HITO Robotics as they prepare to enter production.
INDI EV relocated its research and development (R&D) facility to an automotive hubspot in Greater Los Angeles. The new facility in Orange County, Costa Mesa will allow INDIEV to centralize resources to bring its first model, the INDI One, closer to production. INDIEV is set to join the established auto companies already in OC and get a new perspective to the heart of the West Coast’s automotive sector. INDI EV looks forward to learning from, inspiring others, and growing the INDI team in the innovative community of Orange County, a hub for the automotive industry.
INDI EV has also closed a $120 million dollar deal with HITO Robotics, known for its manufacturing solutions including auto-parts manufacturing automation and intelligent logistics robots. INDIEV is purchasing equipment for a completely automated assembly line to create standardized systems and highly automated production models. The automated new system will allow for a flexible vehicle production process that can expand from 20 units in phase one to 80 units in the expansion phase.
These two milestones mark significant progress in the production of the INDI One, which started being developed in 2017. INDIEV is excited to continue its growth and success with the new R&D facility and the partnership with HITO Robotics Systems.
