Future Mobility Corp. (FMC), an electric-vehicle (EV) startup founded by BMW and Tesla alumni, has signed a deal for German engineering firm Duerr Group to build it an automated painting factory as it prepares to launch its first model.

The Duerr-built factory will be able to paint up to 150,000 cars a year for FMC’s Byton brand in Nanjing in what is one of the biggest orders from an electric-vehicle company to date, Duerr said in a release. The price of the deal was not disclosed.
