Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) has hit an important milestone with its popular Sorento, with the one-millionth unit of the SUV rolling off the production line this week at the company’s West Point plant. The first Sorento to be built at the facility saw the light of day on November 16, 2009, after an investment by the company of $1.1 billion USD.
Since 2011, the plant, located 130 km southwest of Atlanta, has also been the production site for the Optima sedan.
"The Sorento is a special product to our KMMG team as it was the first vehicle assembled at our Georgia plant," said KMMG CEO Harrison Shin. "Our team is committed to building the best vehicles in the world right here in West Point, Georgia and we dedicate ourselves to world-class quality each day."
KMMG has now produced nearly 2.4 million vehicles in the United States.
