Hyundai Motor and sister company Kia have announced a combined investment of 21 trillion won in the domestic electric vehicle industry by 2030.

Hyundai Motor Group said on Wednesday that the investments are expected to help advance the local EV ecosystem and bolster the country's role in leading innovation in the future car industry.

The investments will be spent on enhancing production capacity, diversifying its lineup, developing technology and building infrastructure.

Hyundai hopes to increase its annual domestic production from an estimated 350-thousand units this year to one-point-44 million by 2030.
