Hyundai Motor Group will bring its New Horizons Studio headquarters to Bozeman to focus on the development of ultimate mobility vehicles. The move could create up to 50 new jobs in the area. The studio will eventually be housed at Montana State University’s Innovation Campus.

Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte announced the news at a press conference Thursday at the MSU Alumni Foundation.

Gianforte praised the work ethic of Montanans. He said that the same work ethic that gave his business, RightNow Technologies, a competitive edge would also help Hyundai’s new studio.
