A year after Panasonic chose Kansas over Oklahoma for a $4 billion EV battery plant, Oklahoma lost in a bid to land a multi-billion dollar Volkswagen battery plant. The company announced its decision Monday, saying it decided to build the plant in Canada. reports Oklahoma was considered to be on VW’s short list of sites after the state legislature moved quickly to approve incentives.
