HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) – The European electric van of the future is one step closer to getting off the ground, thanks to a vote by the city of Hazelwood.

A deal between the city of Hazelwood and Emerald hit a road block because of money. A global car manufacturer came up with the cash and acquired Emerald. Wednesday night, the city council gave the project the final thumbs up. It will be the only commercial electric van on the market

This means 300 jobs for the city.

The company has to go through a few more processes to get final approvals.
