WEST POINT (Georgia): The team of Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) officially began production of the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride, Kia’s largest and most rugged SUV to date.

The celebratory vehicle was dark moss in colour and came equipped with the SX Prestige package.

It was introduced by Kia Motors North America (KMNA) CEO Sean Yoon and driven off of the line by KMMG’s President and CEO Jason Shin and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. Friday’s event also included a special appearance by Korbin Pope, the local star of Kia’s Super Bowl commercial.

“We are incredibly proud of the Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia Team for launching another excellent product right here in the Peach State,” said Kemp.

“As Georgia’s Governor, it was an honor to attend today’s ceremony, celebrate KMMG’s workforce, and commend them for their commitment to innovation, quality, and growth. Today’s launch of the Telluride, a product that will be made exclusively here in our state, is a remarkable milestone for Georgians.”

The Telluride is joining the award-winning Sorento SUV and Optima mid-size sedan on KMMG’s production line.
