U.S. production of Hyundai Ioniq 5 under consideration – Report [Update]

Hyundai Motor Group is considering manufacturing the Hyundai Ioniq 5 at the Hyundai Alabama plant in the USA, reports coming out of S.Korea said last month. Such a move would pave the way for the American production of the Ioniq 7 and other future Ioniq crossover/SUV models.

Euisun Chung, the Chairman of Hyundai Motor Group (HMG), made a week-long trip to the USA recently, during which he visited Alabama. There have been no public disclosures regarding the agenda of the trip, but according to a source of The Korea Times, the chairman visited the Hyundai Alabama factory to assess if the existing production line was suitable for the Ioniq 5.
