A spokesman for GE Capital said there was no financial commitment made to California-based ZAP or its partner, Integrity Manufacturing of Shepherdsville.
Stephen White says reports that Norwalk, Conn.-based GE Capital had pulled out of the project are false because GE Capital had not made a proposal to fund it.
White told the Lexington Herald-Leader and The Associated Press there was never a signed contract.
Randall Waldman, chief executive officer of Integrity, told the Herald-Leader he thought he had a verbal commitment for $125 million from GE Capital for the project and was later told there would be no funding.
Gov. Steve Beshear said in August the proposed plant would employ 4,000 workers.
