- Hyundai Motor Company HYMTF plans to build two joint venture battery plants in the U.S. with LG Energy Solution Ltd.
- The proposed plants will be built in Georgia, located near the automaker’s new EV plant, to help meet U.S. EV subsidy rules, Reuters reported.
- Each plant is expected to have an annual capacity of about 35 gigawatt hours (GWh).
- The battery facility will be able to power about 1 million electric vehicles.
- The move comes as the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act mandates 40% of minerals used for batteries should be sourced from the U.S. starting 2023.
