Today, Hyundai’s U.S. operations and dealerships support nearly 100,000 jobs and contribute over $7 billion to the national economy. And they’re a big part of the more than $75 billion invested in the U.S. by international automakers that employ 130,000 Americans at nearly 500 facilities.
In 2017, Hyundai announced we’re investing $3.1 billion in the United States over the next five years, which will be used for R&D and to upgrade our production facilities. That brings Hyundai Motor Group’s total investment in the U.S. to $10 billion. And we’re committed to growing and contributing even more to the American economy.
