Bozeman Will Be New Headquarters For This Car Company
Will this be a massive move for Bozeman, or will this be a pebble in the pond?
KBZK is reporting that the Hyundai Motor Group will relocate its New Horizon Studio headquarters to Bozeman. The Hyundai investment is worth $20 million and will create at least fifty jobs in Gallatin County. This news is a huge announcement for the Bozeman area, or is it?
The Hyundai Motor Group is a new addition to the many tech companies that are currently located in the Gallatin Valley area. This part of the Hyundai Motor Group will specifically be working on developing Ultimate Mobility Vehicles.
If you are wondering what an Ultimate Mobility Vehicle is, well, it's a bit tough to say. Not only are these vehicles made for people to transverse any terrain but autonomous vehicles to deliver or carry packages. Check out the video below.
As you can see, this particular sector of the Hyundai Motor Group will be working closely with Montana State students on these projects to help develop, test, and fabricate these vehicles.
This announcement will be huge for Montana State University and its engineering program. Montana State students will get a hands-on experience with one of the most prolific car companies in the world.
I wouldn't be surprised if this new headquarters here in Bozeman also helps develop some electric vehicles for Hyundai too. Many major car companies have been announcing plans for a full lineup of electric automobiles in the future. Plus, that might help push Bozeman into becoming a more electric car-ready area.
If this move is a success, don't be surprised if we see more news like this in the future.
