LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Work has stopped at a site outside Las Vegas where upstart electric car company Faraday Future has said it plans to have vehicles that are still in the design phase rolling off a new $1 billion assembly line in 2018.

Faraday Future spokesman Ezekiel Wheeler said Tuesday the pause at the Apex Industrial Park site will let the company put money and attention toward developing the concept car it wants to present at the big Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.

Contractor AECOM says in a statement that it completed grading and foundation work, and expects the go-ahead to resume construction next year.

Nevada has pledged up to $335 million worth of incentives toward the project with Gardena, California-based Faraday.
