Ford Breaks Ground At BlueOval City Facility; To Provide About 6,000 Jobs In 2025

Automaker Ford Motor Co. (F) announced Friday it has officially broken ground at BlueOval City, its largest, most advanced auto production complex in the company's 119-year history.

This is part of $5.6 billion investment by Ford and SK On to build a revolutionary all-new electric truck and advanced batteries for future Ford and Lincoln vehicles in West Tennessee.

With construction underway at BlueOval City, Ford gets closer to its target of a 2 million EV production run rate globally by late 2026.

The nearly 6-square-mile mega campus will create approximately 6,000 new jobs when production begins in 2025.
