According to Reuters, Korea IT News reported that the companies were targeting a 2024 start of production for the vehicle, which will either be built at an existing factory in Georgia that currently manufactures vehicles for Hyundai-owned Kia, or at a new purpose-built facility in the U.S.
The outlet later edited the story to remove details on the location and timing, but said that a prototype could be revealed as early as next year.
The report echoed one from last week from Korea Economic TV that said the plan was to co-develop and begin the manufacture of both self-driving electric cars and batteries in the United States by 2027. A Hyundai spokesperson initially acknowledged that the companies were in discussions regarding a possible tie-up, but a regulatory filing issued after the report only said that “it has received requests for potential cooperation from various companies on developing autonomous EVs.”
