Kia Motors achieves record sales
Added: 27 November 2018
Kia Motors (UK) hit record sales in September with 16,299 vehicles sold. The record-breaking figures for the month was a 3.8% increase over the same period in 2017.
The fantastic numbers at the end of September sent the overall total sales for Kia in 2018 to 78,726.
The launch of the all-new Ceed and the continuing popularity of the Sportage SUV helped increase Kia’s market share up to 4.8% for the month of September and 4.1% for the year to that point.
These sales figures are particularly impressive considering the market took a 20.5% downturn overall, with political uncertainly putting off many motorists from buying new cars.
The Sportage remained the most popular vehicle among the stylish Kia roster, thanks to its innovative design and striking features. 6,309 were delivered in September alone. The distinctive SUV claimed 7th place in the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders top ten best sellers, and 10th place for the year.
