BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. – Tysons, Va.-based Scout Motors is erecting beams for its sizable production center that by the close of 2026 will begin manufacturing up to 200,000 electric vehicles per year – the equivalent of 40 trucks and SUVs per hour.

The plant will occupy 1,100 acres of a 1,600-acre site off of Interstate 77 in Blythewood, S.C., some 20 miles north of Columbia, S.C. in the southeast quadrant of Richland County’s industrial park.

Scout Motors will manufacture all-electric trucks and rugged SUVs there.

A total of four million cubic yards of dirt were moved to ensure a flat surface pad for the future plant structures.

4,000 permanent jobs are expected to be created.

Scout Motors is a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group.
