Kia Motors India recently celebrated one lakh cumulative sales milestone in the Indian market. The company has become the fastest automaker in India to reach this landmark in just eleven months since the launch of the Seltos last year, a record number for any new entrant to achieve in such a short time. Kia Motors’ first car in India, the Seltos, hit the market back in August 2019 and has created a niche for itself ever since. Within just 2 months of its launch, the Kia Seltos emerged as the highest-selling SUV in the segment and marked Kia’s entry in the esteemed list of top five carmakers in India. Furthermore, the company gave Indian roads more than 50,000 connected cars, making it the country’s leading connected car company. During the month of June, Kia Motors India also launched the refreshed Seltos loaded with 10 compelling new additions along with 50+ UVO connected car features.
Commenting on the occasion, Kookhyun Shim, MD and CEO, Kia Motors India said, “2019 marked an important year for Kia as we introduced our first car for the Indian market with an aim to become a household name in the country. We are overwhelmed with the response and acceptance that Indian customers have shown towards us. Reaching the one lakh milestone with just two products, in a record eleven-month time, is a testament to our commitment to India. Today marks a proud moment for all of us at Kia Motors India and after the immense success of Seltos and Carnival, we are confident to keep up the positive momentum and lead the Indian automobile industry by addressing the unmet needs and aspirations of the customers with the upcoming Kia Sonet.”
Kia Motors India is now getting set to launch the highly-anticipated Kia Sonet in the coming months. Equipped with many segment-first features along with a distinctive Kia DNA, the Sonet will stand apart for its excellent design and impeccable quality. Scheduled for its World Premiere on August 7, followed by the launch during the festive season, the Sonet will enable Kia Motors India to set new benchmarks in the compact-SUV segment.
