In order to be perceived as a US manufacturer, you have to produce your cars in the US. Hyundai knows that and acts accordingly. Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) celebrated the launch of the all-new 2022 Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
On the Montgomery manufacturing line, the Santa Cruz joins the Sonata and Elantra sedans, as well as the Santa Fe and Tucson SUVs. This is the first time HMMA has built five cars at the same time.
The much-anticipated Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle shatters both the SUV and truck segments, establishing a whole new vehicle category. For various gear-carrying versatility, the Santa Cruz has a safe, open bed space with a lockable tonneau cover and concealed bed storage.
HMMA has completed a plant expansion project in order to accommodate the addition of the Santa Cruz to HMMA’s product mix. The inclusion of the Santa Cruz will improve HMMA’s flexibility to adjust vehicle production in response to market demand and remain competitive in the ever-changing automotive market.
The addition of the Santa Cruz will help to keep high-quality jobs at HMMA and its suppliers. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz will be available at dealerships in the United States later this summer.Source: Hyundai
