Hyundai, during a recent visit by President Joe Biden to Seoul, announced a further $5 billion would be invested in the US though it wasn’t clear where the money would be invested. Last Friday, Hyundai pronounced plans to invest $5.5 billion in Georgia to build electric vehicles and battery facilities.

According to Yahoo Finance, this brings these new investments total to roughly $10 billion by 2025, above the already announced $7.4 billion sums declared last year. In its domestic market, Hyundai will spend about $16 billion into 2030 to expand its EV business.
