How it transmits Tanjug, South Korean car giant Hyundai Motor is planning an electric vehicle factory in the United States.
The company is in talks to build a plant in Georgia, near the existing factories that produce Hyundai and Kia brands.
“A plan to build a new electric vehicle factory in the United States will be announced soon, but at this stage we cannot share details about it with you,” Hyundai said in response to a Reuters inquiry about their investment plans.
The company is in advanced talks with the officials of the American federal state of Georgia on the construction of a dedicated plant for electric vehicles, three sources who were directly referred to the negotiations told the British agency. Details of the investment, including its estimated value and the number of jobs that would be created, are not yet known.
The new plant in Georgia, if the negotiations are successfully completed, would serve Hyundai and Kia to produce and launch several completely new models of electric SUVs – Lonik 7 and EV9 – intended only for the US market, Reuters interlocutors said.
Last month, Hyundai announced a $ 300 million investment to produce the all-electric Genesis GV 70 and a hybrid version of Santa Fe at its Alabama plant. The Genesis model would be Hyundai’s first electric car to be produced in the United States.
