Demand for the Hyundai Palisade is so strong that the carmaker is looking for ways to increase production of large SUVs.
Palisade is currently being manufactured at Hyundai’s Ulsan 4 plant in Korea. This site builds 6,000 to 7,000 units monthly for the US market, but according to Korea Newsis, demand in the US is between 8,000 and 9,000 units per year.
The car manufacturer has considered several different ways to deal with the scarcity problem. One opportunity is to start building Palisade at its Alabama plant.
It is also possible that Staria’s production could be moved from the Ulsan plant to the Jeonju plant, which will increase Palisade production in Ulsan.
However, Newsis claims that the workers’ union at the Hyundai Ulsan plant is opposed to the idea of transferring Staria production to the Jeonju plant, believing that the Ulsan plant should continue to produce both vehicles in case the Palisade’s popularity declines in the future. p>
Newsis notes that the Jeonju plant is capable of producing 100,000 vehicles per year. But last year he produced only 36,000 cars. Hyundai is currently in talks with its unions to resolve this issue.
