Canoo Announces New EV Battery Module Mfg. Facility

Located in Pryor, Oklahoma, the new facility will be capable of approximately 3,200 MWhs of battery module manufacturing capacity.

High-tech advanced mobility company Canoo announced its EV Battery Module Manufacturing Facility at MidAmerica Industrial Park in Pryor, Oklahoma. The new facility will expand Canoo’s manufacturing and employment footprint in the region.

Once ramped, the facility will be capable of approximately 3,200 MWhs of battery module manufacturing capacity, says the company.

“We are accelerating our hiring plans in Pryor with the establishment of our EV Battery Module Manufacturing Facility, which will produce our proprietary battery modules, energy management system and thermal control technology for our MPP platform” said Tony Aquila, Canoo chairman and CEO. “This is the first building block for Canoo’s production ramp strategy, with more news coming very soon. The location has been strategically selected due to its proximity to our battery cell partner Panasonic and our future MegaMicro factory. In addition, we will be the first EV company to produce our battery modules with Hydro-Power from the Grand River Dam Authority. We will work closely with and hire within the surrounding communities to create an EV Ecosystem in the region.”

Canoo previously announced Panasonic as its battery cell provider. The company will begin renovations on its 100,000 sq.ft building located on a 10-acre campus in Q4, 2022 in preparation for delivery of secured manufacturing equipment in Q1, 2023. This location will produce proprietary battery modules on high-capacity assembly lines with state-of-the-art automated machinery. Canoo has refined and validated its battery module manufacturing over recent months and is awaiting delivery of machinery at the new facility. The battery campus will be powered by hydroelectricity from Grand River Dam Authority.

Canoo says it battery campus will implement workforce training programs in partnership with the Cherokee Nation, MidAmerica and other local training partners with a goal to provide high-paying light blue collar jobs to the local community.
