WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Webster City company is close to beginning production of electric vehicles.

AMS Inc. owner Joe Fleming says the firm is about two weeks away from producing the autos and is putting final preparations in place. The Webster City Freeman Journal reports Tuesday that the company will start out assembling about 38 cars a week and increase that to about 100 cars a week in December.

The company is hiring workers and Fleming says they're "anxious to get started." In late July the company and Webster City announced that AMS had signed an agreement with EnVision Motor Company of Ames to produce the Electric Motor Cars brand. AMS workers will install the drive train and motor into cars chassis made in Europe.
