Hyundai's Alabama Plant Sets Production Record

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Hyundai's Alabama auto factory set a record for monthly output in June.

Officials say workers built 31,500 Sonata sedans and Santa Fe SUVs.

Workers have been in overdrive as the factory tries to keep pace with rising demand for the redesigned 2011 Sonata and for the Santa Fe.

Last month, the plant produced 19,681 Sonatas, along with 11,819 Santa Fes. That's up 12.5 percent from May's output. It also surpasses the last monthly production record of 28,350 vehicles, set in March.

Vehicles built in Montgomery are sold across the United States and exported to Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico.
