The 3,00,000th car to roll out of Kia’s manufacturing facility in Anantapur was a Seltos.
Kia India has achieved a new milestone, as sales crossed the 3 lakh unit mark. The company achieved the milestone in less than 2 years, making it the fastest brand to surpass 3 lakh sales in India.
Kia achieved the first 1 lakh milestone in July 2020. In January 2021, sales had already crossed the 2 lakh unit mark and the next 1 lakh sales were achieved this month. It took 1 year for Kia to reach the 1 lakh sales mark, but the next 2 lakhs were achieved in the same amount of time. The 3,00,000th car to roll out of Kia’s manufacturing facility in Anantapur was a Seltos.
Kia forayed into the Indian market with the Seltos crossover. It makes up 66% of the brand’s total sales. The smaller Sonet added 32% to the sales. The carmaker also offers the Carnival MPV in India, of which 7,310 units have been sold.
Kia aims to expand its footprint from the current 300 to 360 touchpoints, covering 90% of the Indian market, including Tier III, IV, and upcountry markets.
