Hyundai Motor America said it broke ground on a new safety test and investigation lab in Superior Township, Michigan.
The nearly $52 million facility will include test sites, a field crash investigation lab, a high voltage battery lab and a forensics lab, the Fountain Valley-based automaker said.
“Safety is the top priority at Hyundai and is embedded throughout the entire organization,” Hyundai President and COO José Muñoz said in a statement. “The new laboratory will enable us to even more effectively protect our customers and enhance our world-class safety organization.”
The lab will be fully operation in the fall of 2023 and create 160 jobs.
