Hyundai Resumes Operation of One of its Factories in South Korea

South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor announced on Monday its intention to resume production at a local factory, after resuming the supply of electronic components needed for production.

The company said in an official report that it suspended the Asan plant from 15 to 17 September due to a shortage of spare parts for chips, which led to production losses of up to 3,000 cars.

The production capacity of the Asan plant is 300,000 units annually, and it produces the “Sonata” saloon car, and the “Santafe” SUV.

The Asan plant suspended its operations on September 9 and 10 due to spare parts problems, and from July 13 to August 6 to modernize the facilities, before production of the mid-size saloon car “Ionic 6” begins later this year.

And the South Korean Yonhap Agency indicated that Hyundai owns seven factories in South Korea, including five factories in Ulsan, one in Asan and one in Jeonju, and 10 factories abroad, including four in China and one each in the United States, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Russia, India and Brazil. . Its total capacity is 5.5 million vehicles.
