ANDERSON , Ind. — An Obama administration official got a behind-the-scenes look at the cutting-edge technology that Bright Automotive wants to put on the road if it can get the federal assistance to build its plug-in hybrid van.

Teno Villarreal, special assistant for the Office of Recovery for Auto Communities and Workers, spent the day in Anderson on Wednesday, finishing with a stop at the Flagship office of Bright.

Company officials told Villarreal they hoped to receive funding that would allow them to create as many as 6,000 jobs related to the Idea, Bright’s original design for a light, efficient and environmentally friendly utility van.
