The Hyundai IONIQ 5 to be produced in the United States by 2025. 

Hyundai Motor Group announced that its new Group Metaplant America (HMGMA) in Bryan County, Georgia, will kick off production with the IONIQ 5. The all-electric SUV has won many awards since it was unveiled worldwide. In March, Parents magazine named the IONIQ 5 the Best Electric 5-Passenger SUV for Families in the 2024 Best Family Cars Awards. 

The IONIQ 5 has yet to be unveiled in North America, and the HMGMA is still under construction. As such, the production plant and the IONIQ 5 will lead Hyundai’s new journey together in North America. 

“This is a very exciting time for HMGMA. We are in the final phase of construction and are getting ready for the 2025 Hyundai IONIQ 5 to roll off the line. It’s the ideal vehicle for us to start production with,” said Oscar Kwon, President and CEO of HMGMA. 

According to the South Korean automaker, HMGMA has already started training and preparing for the start of production in the fourth quarter of 2024. The Georiga-based car factory will manufacture all trim lines of the all-electric SUV, except the IONIQ 5 N. HMGMA will exclusively produce the IONIQ 5 models slated for the U.S. market. 

Hyundai Motor Group will also produce Kia and Genesis vehicles at its new plant in Georgia. The HMGMA plant was supposed to be dedicated solely to electric vehicle production. Earlier this year, however, Hyundai decided to produce hybrid vehicles at the plant to mitigate the slowing demand for EVs.
