It was announced on the 21st (21st) that it would build an electric vehicle-only plant worth $5.5 billion in Georgia, USA, and it is an additional investment plan.

The amount of US investment announced by Hyundai Motor Group to coincide with President Biden’s visit to Korea amounted to 10.5 billion dollars, or 13.3 trillion won in Korean money.

This is $3.1 billion more than the amount of investment in the US announced in May last year.
