"Anderson-based Bright Automotive will soon roll out the start-up company's made-in-Indiana plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that's capable of achieving 100 miles per gallon.
But the unveiling -- scheduled for April 21-- won't be in Central Indiana, but in Washington, D.C.
Executives of the 1-year-old company say their prototype vehicle deserves a bigger stage because of some of the landmark qualities, ranging from fuel efficiency to aerodynamics and 'clean-tech' design."
The company plans to create over 5,000 jobs by 2013.
Energy Systems Network CEO Paul Mitchell said he thinks the rollout "throws out the whole playbook of Detroit" in terms of the design an functionality.
Prick up your ears - Yes, we can do things like this in Anderson and in Indiana. Or to play on something from Cole Porter and President Obama, we can-can.
