Hyundai Ups SUV Production - the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport will be built at the Hyundai Alabama plant.

The world has a hunger for SUVs and crossovers and this is forcing car manufacturers like Hyundai to rethink their car production schedules.

Amid this unprecedented growth, Hyundai has just announced it will start building left-hand drive Hyundai Santa Fe SUVs at its Alabama plant in the U.S.

The Santa Fe joining the current production of the Sonata and Elantra at the Hyundai facility.

While none of the Hyundai Santa Fe vehicles built in the U.S. will come to Australia, it does take pressure off Hyundai’s South Korean production lines which are struggling to keep up with domestic and international demand, especially for Hyundai SUVs.

Hyundai Motor America boss, Dave Zuchowski, says the new U.S. Santa Fe production will help get the popular vehicle more quickly into the nations dealerships.

“We’re very happy Hyundai has been able to make this change, which will result in more great Santa Fe crossovers available to our dealers and customers,”

“The new production will help us meet the growing demand for one of our most popular products.”

The Santa Fe was last built at Hyundai’s Alabama production plant in August 2010.
