Genesis Starts to Assemble GV70 SUVs in USA


Today, Genesis announced that its lineup of GV70 SUV models will begin assembly in the United States joining the Electrified GV70 which started production earlier this year. A significant investment of over $300 million has been made to enhance the production facility to accommodate future growth which includes GV70. Warehouse space has been added and modifications to the stamping and weld shops will allow for the creation of the vehicle bodies.

“We are pleased to bring further assembly of Genesis vehicles to the United States, bolstering availability of our products and investing in our communities,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America.

GV70 is currently the best-selling model in the Genesis lineup and the localization of its assembly in the United States is a significant step forward in delivering the highly desired model to American consumers. Starting with the 2024 model year, all GV70 vehicles for the U.S. market will be assembled in Montgomery, Ala.

“Since February, our nearly 4,000 Alabama team members have successfully assembled the Electrified GV70 with the Genesis customer’s highest expectations in mind,” said Ernie Kim, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA). “Now, they are ready to launch the broader GV70 lineup with the same commitment to safety and quality that has been a mainstay at HMMA since 2005.”

GV70 is designed with a strong personality and a driver centric interior. It offers an optimal driving experience by adopting state-of-the-art technology. Every line, shape, and material, both inside and out, have been carefully crafted, honed, and perfected—resulting in a stunning design. Standard equipment includes all-wheel drive, a 14.5-inch HD multimedia display, and a comprehensive suite of driver assistance and safety technologies, including Highway Driving Assist.

The 2023 Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 SUVs are currently available at select U.S. retailers.
