DETROIT, MI – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) will join a southwest Ohio electric vehicle company to reveal a new electric jeep model at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Amp Electric Vehicles, based in Loveland, will display a converted Jeep Grand Cherokee during a press conference at the auto show on Monday. The company will also release final pricing while introducing its first dealer, an Ohio-based dealership.

Brown is working to foster clean energy manufacturing while expanding Ohio’s auto industry. As Chairman of the Senate Banking Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and a member of the Senate Manufacturing Caucus, Brown has introduced a package of key legislative proposals aimed at bolstering the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers and boosting domestic manufacturing, including a bill to advance a “National Manufacturing Strategy.” The bipartisan National Manufacturing Strategy Act of 2011 would boost traditional and high-tech manufacturing, spur American job growth, and strengthen the middle class.
