SEOUL -- South Korea's Hyundai Motor Group will build its first overseas fuel cell factory in China, taking advantage of government backing for autos that run on hydrogen.

Work starts next month on the plant in a special development district of Guangzhou. Operations will begin after completion in the second half of 2022, with capacity starting out at 6,500 fuel cell systems a year, Hyundai said Friday.
