Hyundai Alabama to launch Santa Fe Sport SUV after $52M project

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Hyundai’s Alabama plant will start mass production of the Santa Fe Sport SUV this week, adding a third vehicle to the automaker’s busy Montgomery assembly lines.

The launch is set for Wednesday, and the move will allow Hyundai to meet growing demand for the vehicle amid a strong U.S. market for trucks and SUVs.

The Santa Fe will continue to be made at a factory in West Point, Ga., operated by the automaker’s affiliate, Kia. And on the Alabama assembly lines, workers will keep building the Sonata and Elantra sedans, which are consistently top sellers for Hyundai.
