Bringing Quality Close to Home

In 2006, Kia first opened their KMMG production plant, which first released new Kia Sorento SUVs and Kia Optima sedans by 2009. If you purchased or leased either of those vehicles from 2009 to the present, chances are, that car came from the KMMG plant in West Point, Georgia. Recently, the KMMG began producing the Kia Telluride SUV at this plant as well, and we may see more US-made choices available for sale or lease.

The KMMG facility currently has over 3,000 employees, which accounts for six percent of employment in the Kia Motor Company. Annually, the plant produces about 360,000 cars, accounting for 12 percent of the Kia brand's total inventory capacity. The KMMG building itself has a total area of 2,612,000 square meters, roughly 376 times the size of your average soccer field. Our factory building consists of an assembly plant, as well as a transmission shop, module shop, and a two-mole proving track, where we put the powertrains of these exceptional cars to the test!

Stress-Free Car-Shopping

Kia first planted roots in Irvine, CA with the Kia Design Center America. This facility sits on 22 acres of corporate campus lot, with various facilities for refining the looks of Kia models that will be constructed or imported here in the United States. The parking lot of this facility helps filter water/vehicle runoff in an environmentally conscious way, using a bioswale system. Many of the vehicles designed here you might not see in other countries, and vice versa with Kia models designed overseas. Demands for different types of cars around the world, and the design center in Irvine creates the types of cars we all know and love.

Supporting Communities and Job Creation

Between the design center, the KMMG production plant, and distributing areas such as our dealership, the Kia brand has created thousands of jobs right here in the US. When you invest in a Kia that was designed or built in the US, you are supporting the livelihood of many hardworking individuals employed as part of the Kia family. In turn, our Kia dealership likes to give back to our local communities in any ways that we can, through community outreach and charitable contributions.
