Hyundai Alabama launches mass production of Santa Cruz sport utility

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) celebrated the production launch of the all-new 2022 Santa Cruz sport utility at the automaker’s Montgomery facility on Tuesday, expanding the plant’s family of Alabama-built vehicles to five.

A gray Santa Cruz, adorned with a red bow, rolled off the Montgomery plant’s assembly line during a ceremony featuring members of a local high school marching band and speeches from the facility leadership.

“The Santa Cruz marks the first HMMA-built vehicle that originated right here in Montgomery, Alabama. This vehicle is not being built anywhere else in the world,” Robert Burns, the facility’s senior vice president of human resources and administration, told workers during Tuesday’s ceremony.

“My fellow team members, we are the parents of this innovative, stylish and functional sport utility vehicle,” he added.
