Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) announced the Santa Cruz compact utility vehicle will be built at Hyundai’s U.S. automotive assembly plant in Montgomery, AL, starting in 2021.

The plant will require a $410 million expansion to support the addition of the vehicle.

 

“Bringing the Santa Cruz to HMMA demonstrates that Hyundai Motor Company is confident our more than 3,000 Team Members are ready to build a quality crossover for the U.S. market,” said Byungjin Jin, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.

 

Santa Cruz is for those who want all the traditional attributes of a compact utility vehicle, but need the day-to-day versatility of an open bed.

 

“Hyundai’s new investment is giving more Alabama families an opportunity to earn a good living while also strengthening the state’s growing auto industry,” Governor Ivey said.
