Kia Motors Increase Investment In India

Once fully operational, the plant " located in Yerramachi village " will boast of an annual capacity of 3,00,000 units, and provide jobs to nearly 3,000 people.

Andhra Pradesh: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday lashed out at the Central Government for not fulfilling the promises made in the state reorganisation act.

Kia has already invested $1.1 billion (over Rs 7,000 crore) in the said facility, which covers an area of 213.7 hectares. I am happy to announce that the construction of the plant is one month ahead of schedule.

And now, the CM changes his mind and plans to make Andhra Pradesh an automobile hub. "We aim to set a new standard of automotive lifestyle experience by providing Indian consumers with world-class products and service, but also deeply engaging with the Indian people and giving back to the community whenever possible", Han-Woo Park, President and CEO of Kia Motors Corporation, said.


The South Korean automobile giant Kia motors is setting up its fifth manufacturing unit, and the first in India, in Andhra Pradesh.

The SP Concept SUV, which Kia Motors India recently showcased at the Auto Expo 2018, will be the first model to roll out of the facility. A joint training programme is likely to be run with the Andhra Pradesh government to train individuals for the job. We are here to build more than just great cars.

It was in April 2017, that Kia Motors entered into an MoU with the Government of Andhra Pradesh to build a state-of-the-art facility which will see the first vehicle roll out of the assembly line in the second half of 2019.
