TOKYO, July 14 (Reuters) - Panasonic Holdings Corp's planned electric vehicle battery plant in the U.S. state of Kansas will not be limited to supplying Tesla, U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel said on Thursday.
The project represents a significant investment in a key industry, Emanuel told reporters.
Panasonic, a major supplier to Tesla, earlier said it was planning a $4 billion EV battery project in De Soto, Kansas that would create up to 4,000 jobs. (Reporting by Rocky Swift Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
