Hyundai Shopping in Georgia to Build New EV Plant

This new EV plant will assemble the Hyundai the Ioniq 7 and Kia EV9 SUVs

  • Hyundai and Kia already have plants in the state.

  • The automaker has already held talks with Georgia officials.

Georgia’s been on many automakers’ minds of late. The Hyundai motor group is the latest to eye the Peach State for a new plant. Hyundai and Kia already have massive facilities there thus it would make sense to build their proposed new EV plant nearby.

Hyundai has not yet confirmed any specific details about the new production plant however, based on Automotive News’ report, the Korean automaker has already held talks with Georgia officials.

Hyundai COO Jose Muñoz said about the suggested plans: “We are excited to announce a new EV plant plan in the United States soon, but we do not have details to share at this stage,”

This facility is expected to be tasked with assembling the all-electric three-row Hyundai Ioniq 7 and Kia EV9 SUVs. These two midsize EVs are aimed squarely at the North American market.

Hyundai should be making an official announcement later this month when US president Joe Biden visits Seoul, South Korea.

Both Hyundai and Kia have big EV plans for the near future to the tune of 14 EVs from Kia by 2027 and 17 from Hyundai by 2030.
