(Bloomberg) -- A second potential customer for Foxconn Technology Group’s electric-vehicle factory in Ohio has filed for bankruptcy, following the Chapter 11 filing of Lordstown Motors Corp. in June.
IndiEV Inc., an electric-vehicle startup, filed for Chapter 11 protection Monday in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California. The California-based startup listed $2.83 million in assets and $26.4 million in liabilities.

Foxconn announced last October that it signed a memorandum to make prototypes of IndiEV’s cars at the former General Motors Co. factory in Lordstown, Ohio. The startup reported just $220,000 in cash around that same time. An effort to go public earlier this year fizzled when IndiEV’s merger partner liquidated.
Foxconn has said it expects its automotive business to generate $33 billion in annual revenue by 2025. A spokesperson for the company said IndiEV’s bankruptcy filing doesn’t impact Foxconn’s other business and manufacturing operations in Ohio, nor its efforts to find additional customers.
The case is IndiEV Inc., 8:23-bk-12036, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California (Santa Ana).
