Hyundai breaks ground on Metaplant America EV and Battery Plant.

Hyundai Motor Group's new Metaplant factory is expected to begin commercial production in the first half of 2025.

Hyundai Motor Group officially broke ground on Metaplant America, a new manufacturing plant at the Bryan County Mega site.

The $5.54 billion investment by the company and its affiliate suppliers was announced five months ago and included plans to produce a diverse range of innovative Hyundai, Genesis, and Kia electric vehicles (EVs) and a new battery manufacturing facility.

HMGMA will create more than 8,100 jobs over the next few years as the company aims to establish a stable supply chain for EV batteries and other EV components in the U.S. market. HMGMA’s new smart factory is expected to begin commercial production in the first half of 2025.

The new plant will boast a highly connected, automated, and flexible manufacturing system. The Georgia facility will become an intelligent manufacturing plant. All processes of production—order collection, procurement, logistics, and production—will be optimized utilizing AI and data. The innovative manufacturing system will also help create a human-centered work environment with robots assisting human workers.

As part of the Group’s commitment to sustainability, the plant will primarily rely on renewable energy sources to power the facility and use emission-reduction technologies to meet the RE100 requirements.

Hyundai Motor Group is accelerating its electrification efforts with the global target to sell 3.23 million fully electric vehicles annually by 2030. To realize this goal, the Group plans to establish a global EV production network that will ensure a stable supply of EVs around the globe.

With the additional EV and battery production capabilities in the U.S., the Group aims to maintain its position as one of the top three EV providers in the U.S. The Group plans to lead the EV market not just in sales, but also in terms of design, technologies, and mobility solutions optimized for the electric mobility era.
