VIDEO: Inside the Sportage factory

Time 2:26 pm, January 21, 2012

kia-dpsWE’VE been privileged enough to visit a few car factories in our time – but most of them are extremely secretive.

Stickers that cover up phone camera lenses and persistent guards are usually the norm – but not when we visited Kia’s factory in Slovakia.

The Zilina site builds the new Sportage, as well as the C’eed, and was the subject of our cover story in Issue 43.

During our visit we were allowed to snap and film away and have finally managed to get around to splicing the footage we captured together.

This short video shows you just some of the steps that take place to transform rolls of sheet metal into Sportages. Enjoy.
