这款惊艳的电动车将在新加坡生产,Hyundai的这个决定与马来西亚有何联系?

这个月的早些时候,Hyundai在新加坡Jurong的电动车工厂开始动工,工厂的年产量达30,000辆,总投资RM 12.2亿。2022年建成后,Hyundai汽车全球创新中心(HMGICs)将成为Hyundai汽车集团(包括Kia在内)在东盟地区内的电动车研发中心。每年在这里生产的30,000辆电动车中,大约会有5,000到6,000辆在新加坡销售,剩下的则都会出口。中间两位:李显龙,新加坡总理;郑义宣,Hyundai汽车集团董事长这个决定有些出人意料,因为高工资成本的新加坡并不是制造业的首选之地,新加坡上一次制造汽车已经是1980年的事情了。这里没有任何汽车制造的行业基础,也没有任何已经成型的供应基地和能够管理汽车工厂的人才。中间两位:Joko Widodo,印度尼西亚总统;郑义宣,Hyundai汽车集团董事长新加坡的这座工厂是Hyundai计划在东盟地区建立的两座工厂之一,Hyundai也正在计划投入RM 64亿,在印度尼西亚建立一座年产量达250,000辆的工厂,这个计划将于明年启动。Inokom的Kulim工厂由Sime Darby汽车、 Bermaz汽车(原Berjaya汽
