Kia Motors India celebrates a milestone of 1 lakh cumulative sales in the Indian market. The company becomes the fastest automaker in India to reach this landmark in just eleven months since the launch of its debut car last year, a record number for any new entrant to achieve in such a short time. It is a testament to the faith of millions of customers in Kia Motors India products.

Kia Motors launched its first car in India, the Seltos, in August 2019 and immediately disrupted the segment and created a niche for itself. Right from its entry in the Indian market, the journey of Kia Motors has been nothing short of a success story. 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 5 carmakers in India.

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 all set to relay its accomplishments with the launch of Kia Sonet in the coming months. Scheduled for its World Premiere on August 7, followed by the launch during the festive season.
