Hyundai's rapid rise from "The choice of Rodney King" to "Hey, that's pretty nice" was punctuated yesterday by the opening of a 300,000 car a year plant in nowhere other than the Deep South. The Sonata, which is being produced by the plant, got high marks in quality and the transformation of Hyundai continues by winning over (at least the politicians) in Montgomery. This new plant comes just at the time the falling dollar is beginning to hurt the Korean carmaker's bottom line.
