Kentucky needs to keep pace with Ford in modernization plans

Excitement is running high because of Ford’s historic investment in Kentucky and for good reason.

Our relationship with Ford began in 1913 with Assembly operations in two small shops in Louisville that produced 12 Model T bodies a day. By 1916, production reached approximately 20 vehicles per day assembled and didn’t stop there. In three short years, Ford nearly doubled their output, paving the way for our vehicles and our economy to be powered by gasoline motors.

For nearly 100 years Kentucky has built, improved and maintained our transportation systems by taxing the fuel used by these vehicles. And now in 2021, at the new Glendale megasite, Kentucky and its partners will shift from the traditional automobile to the electric vehicle of the future.
