On April 8, local Brazilian media noted Caoa’s interest in the Ford plant in São Bernardo do Campo.
Already Ford’s leading distributor in Brazil, Caoa would like to continue producing its light trucks, as well as begin building Hyundai’s Xcient heavy truck line, according to sources connected to the negotiations.
Any changeover of ownership is not expected until December 2019.
Caoa already manufactures Hyundai’s HR and HD80 trucks in Anápolis, and has been studying the feasibility of producing semi-heavy and heavy trucks in Brazil.
Recently, pictures have circulated on the internet of Xcient P440 horsepower trucks and the lightweight Mighty in a Goiás courtyard where Caoa moves imported vehicles.
Caoa envisions the São Bernardo do Campo plant as an export platform for the Hyundai truck line to other countries in South America.
Hyundai Xcient trucks are already sold in Uruguay and Paraguay, countries with which Brazil has bilateral trade agreements.
Caoa is the official importer of Hyundai cars made in South Korea, such as the Elantra sedan and Santa Fe SUV, as well as Subaru imports from Japan.
