EVs are reshaping the South one small town at a time

Stanton, Tennessee -- population 400 -- is getting ready to welcome a Ford auto-manufacturing campus that will employ 6,000 people. And with it, prosperity and some serious growing pains. This one small town is a microcosm of the powerful new economics at play in states throughout the American South.

Featuring:

  • Nora Eckert, Auto Industry Reporter at The Wall Street Journal
