2020 Kia Telluride Production Begins
On Friday, the team of Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) officially began production of the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride, Kia’s largest and most rugged SUV to date. The celebratory vehicle was dark moss in color and came equipped with the SX Prestige package. It was introduced by Kia Motors North America (KMNA) CEO Sean Yoon, and driven off of the line by KMMG’s President and CEO Jason Shin and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. Friday’s event also included a special appearance by Korbin Pope, the local star of Kia’s Super Bowl commercial.
“We are incredibly proud of the KMMG Team for launching another excellent product here in the Peach State,” said Kemp. “As Georgia’s Governor, it was an honor to attend today’s ceremony; to celebrate KMMG’s workforce; and finally to commend them for their commitment to innovation, quality, and growth. Today’s launch of the Telluride, a product that will be made exclusively here in our state, is a remarkable milestone for Georgians.”
The Telluride is joining the award-winning Sorento SUV and Optima mid-size sedan on KMMG’s production line.
“The addition of the Kia Telluride to KMMG is further evidence of our commitment to the U.S. and local economy,” said Yoon. “This vehicle was imagined and designed specifically for the United States in our Kia Design Center in Irvine, California and is now being assembled here in West Point. There is no doubt that the world-class quality and attention to detail of the Telluride will be second to none.”
