Kia Motors America has announced September 2020 sales of 55,519 units marking both the best September retail sales and best quarterly retail sales performances.  September sales were led by the Telluride and Sportage SUV models with 8,829 and 7,165 units sold, respectively. Year-over-year, retail sales rose 35.3 percent to 53,513 vehicles.

The Telluride SUV registered an all-time monthly sales record for Kia’s fastest turning model in the company’s history in the USA, with 8,829 units sold. The month also saw the best-ever September sales performance for the Sportage SUV while the Seltos SUV also registered record monthly sales with 5,613 units sold. The new K5 midsize sedan too notched highest monthly sales, with 5,763 units sold in September.

“Our strong September sales performance was led by record setting sales of three of our popular and capable SUVs, Telluride, Sportage and Seltos, and also marked the brand’s best-ever quarterly sales total in our 25-year history in the U.S.,”  said Bill Peffer, vice-president, sales operations, Kia Motors America. “With the recent introduction of the all-new 2021 Sorento SUV and the ongoing popularity of the all-new K5 midsize sedan, Kia enters the fourth quarter with the most robust model lineup ever. Even despite the ongoing pandemic, Kia’s momentum remains strong as we have outperformed the industry yet again. We’re confident this upward trajectory will continue.”

The Telluride, Sorento and K5 are assembled in the United States from U.S. and globally sourced parts.
