It has been officially confirmed by Hyundai that the GV70e will be built on the Montgomery assembly line in Alabama. The Alabama plant will also build the Santa Fe hybrid.


Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama will later this year begin building the Electrified Genesis GV70 and the hybrid version of the Santa Fe, the company announced today.

The vehicles will join the Elantra sedan, Santa Fe and Tucson SUVs and Santa Cruz sport adventure vehicle on the Montgomery assembly line.

The addition of the Electrified GV70 and Santa Fe Hybrid marks the beginning of Hyundai’s electric vehicle production in the United States. Hyundai plans to invest $300 million and create 200 jobs at its U.S. manufacturing center.

“Hyundai Motor Company is taking its first steps toward bringing electric vehicle production to the United States. We are excited to showcase our team members in producing electric vehicles here in Alabama,” said Ernie Kim, President and CEO – Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.

“Over the years, we have developed an enduring partnership with Hyundai, and it’s been great to witness the profound economic impacts of the company’s continued investments in Alabama,” Gov. Kay Ivey said.

“Hyundai’s new growth plans in Montgomery will help prepare the state’s auto industry for the EV revolution while also aligning with our strategic initiatives such as Drive Electric Alabama. This is another major milestone for our friends at Hyundai.”

HMMA will begin plant expansion projects ranging from additional warehouse space to enhanced assembly processes to support electric vehicle production. The Santa Fe Hybrid will begin production in October 2022 and the Electrified GV70 will roll off the assembly line in December 2022.

The 2023 Electrified GV70 will begin arriving in U.S. dealerships in 2023. The 2022 Santa Fe Hybrid is available at all U.S. dealerships.
