WEST POINT, Ga. (AP) -- Executives at the Kia Motors manufacturing plant in West Point say the 300,000th vehicle has rolled off the assembly line.
The milestone came Thursday, when a silver Sorento crossover utility vehicle was produced.
Company officials say production has been ramping up rapidly at the plant, near the Georgia-Alabama line.
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that expansion at the facility is projected to push its annual capacity to 360,000 vehicles.
Mass production at the West Point plant began on Nov. 16, 2009.
