Alabama’s auto industry is poised for another groundbreaking year in 2023, as companies deepen their commitment to electric vehicle production and other new technologies.
Both Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz continue to expand their lineup of EV models built in the state. Honda, meanwhile, plans updates for several Alabama-made models, while Mazda Toyota Manufacturing proceeds with its workforce development and hiring plans.
“Alabama’s automakers are forging ahead with ambitious growth strategies, with innovations that signal promising futures for their products, employees and the communities they call home,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
“These companies have a proven track record of success — of adapting, reimagining and transforming what they offer to customers — and Alabama workers are helping to fulfill that mission in markets around the world.”
