Kia India Becoming Increasingly Popular In The Market
With consistently strong sales for successive months throughout the year, Kia India is growing very fast. 35 per cent y-o-y YTD growth over 2021 shows the customers’ trust in the brand. A strong market response to EV6 further asserts the strength of the brand Kia in the premium and luxury space as well. Kia India recently crossed the 1.5 lakh exports from its Anantapur plant in Andhra Pradesh. Following the central government initiative of ‘Make in India’, Kia aims to make world-class products in India and take them across the globe. Currently, Kia India ships the Seltos, Sonet, and Carens to 95 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Central & South America, Mexico, and Asia Pacific.
