Government of Indian state, Tamil Nadu has offered almost 400 acres of land for KIA Motors, a part of Seoul-based vehicle maker Hyundai Motors, Industries Minister M C Sampath informed. Keeping in mind that KIA Motors has actually been scouting for places for setting up a factory, Sampath stated the government provided about 400 acres of land and was hopeful that the car maker would set up the manufacturing system in the state.
“After visiting Tamil Nadu, they asked us about 400 acres of land, and we have provided about 390 acres. I am confident that they will establish a factory in Tamil Nadu,” he informed the State Assembly. KIA Motors retails several models, Sportage, Optima, Cadenza, Soul, worldwide and has production centers in Seoul, Mexico.
The proposition comes after reports that stated– Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat have actually all been wooing Kia, according to 2 other individuals with understanding of the matter. One of the two, an official with the Andhra Pradesh administration, said the state – which neighbors Tamil Nadu, house of Hyundai’s current plants near Chennai – is the frontrunner.
The proposed factory is anticipated to begin production in 2019 and shall create 300,000 Kia vehicles a year.
