Kia sells 265,714 units globally in October, up 6.1%

Kia Motors Corporation recorded total global sales of 265,714 units in October, a 6.1 percent increase compared to the same month last year. The Sportage SUV topped Kia’s global sales ranking with 35,811 units sold, followed by the Seltos SUV with 30,822 units and the K3 sedan with 25,533 units.

Sales in Korea rose by 1.8 percent from a year earlier to 48,009 units as brisk sales of the Carnival minivan (also known as Sedona in some markets) as well as Sorento and Seltos SUVs supported Kia’s growth in its home market.

Sales outside of Korea
Sales in overseas markets saw a 7 percent jump from a year earlier with 217,705 units, driven by models such as Sportage and Seltos SUVs and K3 sedan. Kia says it “solid sales results to continue in the upcoming months thanks to an expanded SUV line-up including the Sonet SUV, released in India in August, and the pending debut of a petrol model of the Sorento SUV.”

Kia Motors India is estimated to have sold 21,021 units in October 2020, which means it contributed nearly 8% to total global sales.
