Hyundai to Build $5.5 Billion EV and Battery Plant in the US

Hyundai said Friday that it will build its first dedicated electric vehicle factory and battery production facility in the United States in Georgia. Hyundai is spending about $5.5 billion in electric vehicle manufacturing in Bryan County, Georgia, which will result in the creation of 8,100 new employees.

When it enters commercial production in the first half of 2025, the factory is expected to have a capacity of 300,000 units per year. The facility is set to open early next year.  The battery production plant will be opened with a “strategic cooperation,” according to Hyundai, with details to be released later. It will also reveal which car models will be built at the facility in the future.

“The Group also wants to develop a stable supply chain and construct a healthy EV ecosystem in the United States through the battery production plant,” Hyundai stated in a statement.The factory will cover over 3,000 acres in Bryan County, which is about 30 miles from the Port of Savannah. Kia already has a manufacturing base in West Point, Georgia, roughly 275 miles distant. Hyundai picked Georgia for its “speed-to-market, strong personnel, and established network,” according to the company.

The athletic impression is reinforced by the 8-speed wet dual-clutch automatic gearbox with aluminum paddle. The trademark red stitching that runs from the seats to the steering wheel has the same effect. The N Line badging on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are little details that indicate how much thought went into this Sonata. The N Line logo on the seats continues the design elements that distinguish this vehicle. The cabin is packed with features, including a 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. A 12.3-inch completely digital gauge cluster is also available to the driver.
