Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech: High-quality production in the heart of Europe

Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech in Nošovice opened in 2008 and started production of the first generation i30 the same year. The factory produces the Hyundai Tucson, the Hyundai ix20 and the current version of the Hyundai i30 family. Thanks to a flexible production system, the models can be manufactured on a single production line. The plant recently expanded annual production capacity to 350,000 cars.

Production fulfils the highest standards of quality and to meet the expectations of European customers. Hyundai Motor employs 3,300 people at the plant in Nošovice, which also utilises 500 high-tech robots to produce 1,500 cars each day. 300 quality inspectors check the cars at each stage of production. And every single car that rolls off the production line is tested on the factory's own test track, thus enabling Hyundai Motor to provide its industry-leading 5-year unlimited mileage warranty.

The New Generation Hyundai i30: A Car for Everyone

With design the number one reason for European customers to opt for Hyundai, the New Generation i30 further evolves Hyundai’s design language with precise lines, refined rich surfaces and a sculpted body to create a timeless, confident look. Its design features the newly developed Cascading front grille – the new signature for the Hyundai family.

In order to meet today’s customer expectations, the New Generation i30 democratises technology with state-of the art features. Active safety features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Smart Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, Driver Attention Alert and Blind Spot Detection are complemented by connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and wireless charging.

The New Generation i30 also features a downsized and efficient powertrain line-up to enhance efficiency and responsiveness, including the all-new turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, the 1.4 T-GDI with 140 PS and the new turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, the 1.0 T-GDI with 120 PS.
