Santa Fe Sport production began today at Hyundai Motor Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA). During the balance of 2016, the plant plans to produce more than 36,000 of the Hyundai crossover vehicle to meet the growing demand in this popular segment.
Having Santa Fe Sport production join Sonata and Elantra at HMMA will also provide Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama more flexibility to shift product mix to meet market demands.
“We’re thrilled to bring back another pillar of the Hyundai lineup to our production mix here at HMMA,” said Chris Susock, vice president of production, HMMA. “We’ve been extremely proud to build both Sonata and Elantra on our assembly line for Hyundai in the U.S. and we will continue our tradition of quality and productivity with the addition of the Santa Fe Sport in 2016.”
