Default Hyundai Adds Investment, Jobs To Support U.S. Production

With the all-new, Hyundai Elantra off to a red-hot start in this country, the automaker already has announced a new investment of $173 million in its U.S. manufacturing facilities—located in Montgomery, Ala.—to keep up with demand. And notably, this investment also will mean an additional 214 new jobs for the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama complex, which builds both the Elantra and the Hyundai Sonata.

The primary focus of the new investment will be production of the Elantra’s high-tech, high-efficiency I4 engine. This 1.8-liter powerplant is an amazing 73 lbs. lighter than the previous Elantra’s four-cylinder engine, yet it delivers 10 more hp and 18 percent better highway fuel efficiency. All told, the engine’s new spec sheet shows 148 hp, 131 lb.-ft. of torque and EPA ratings of 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway/33 mpg combined. And unlike rivals that only offer 40 mpg in special models with higher costs, the Elantra delivers that fuel-economy performance in all configurations, regardless of whether they’re kitted out with a manual transmission or an automatic. Key powertrain components responsible for these results include:
  • An aluminum block and head for lighter weight
  • Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT)
  • A Variable Induction System (VIS)
  • A roller swing arm and Hydraulic Lash Adjusters (HLA)
  • Electronic throttle control
  • An offset crankshaft
