Hyundai 2 Hyundai Beginning Production of Santa Fe Sport in Alabama

Hyundai has announced that production of the Santa Fe Sport at its assembly plant in Montgomery, Alabama will start at the beginning of summer 2016. The reason behind the automaker’s decision is credited to the increasing popularity of SUVs in the U.S. market. The five-seater Santa Fe Sport will join the production of the Hyundai Sonata and Elantra at the Montgomery plant. Some of the production will be supplemented to a Georgia facility. In order to open up production capacity for the Santa Fe Sport, there is speculation that Sonata production will lessen since demand for sedans is currently not strong. Between June and December of this year, Hyundai plans on producing around 30,000 Santa Fe Sport models in Montgomery. Get behind the wheel of a Santa Fe Sport at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona.
