If you're convinced by the week's news that Alabama is only about politics and college football, here's some other news that's not a political football: In addition to Toyota's new $106-million expansion of its Huntsville engine plant, Mercedes-Benz last week made a $1-billion commitment to manufacturing electric cars and batteries in Alabama. The carmaker launched its plant near Tuscaloosa 20 years ago. Honda and Hyundai followed suit in the ensuing years. The new Mercedes-Benz investment includes a global logistics center that broke ground this week in Bibb County, where the $249-million project will create 429 new jobs.
