Hyundai Group Metaplant Under Construction Near Savannah, Georgia
A recent press trip visit to Savannah, GA was a combined Ioniq 6 ride and drive, and industrial development presentation, as plans were unveiled for a sprawling Hyundai Motor Group battery and EV components manufacturing facility that is estimated to occupy over 5,000 acres 30 minutes west of the city. This meta-plant will employ 4,000 workers, boosting company annual EV capacity to 300,000 a year.
This estimated $4.3 billion investment is of course a boon to Georgia and the rest of the mid-south economies, where foreign carmakers from Mercedes-Benz and BMW to Nissan and VW have set up one of the world’s largest auto manufacturing regions, even rivaling Detroit in its heyday.
With the focus on EV and onboard tech, LG Solutions has recently taken a substantial partnership in this deal.
