Kia Sales Up Over 37% This Year

Kia continues to surprise the press and car enthusiasts by consistently exceeding expectations. The latest news from quickly-growing Kia yet again resets expectations. In nine months, Kia beat all of their previously held annual sales records - and we still have a few months left in 2011!

Kia Motors America (KMA) recently announced that as of September, they have set new sales records for 13 consecutive months. The 18.4-percent (35,609 units) increase over this time last year is largely attributed to sales of the American-built Kia Sorento, and the well-received Kia Optima.

Sales increased by 16.3 percent outside of the U.S., with 217,736 Kia units sold across the globe in September.  Areas making up total sales include China (45.9-percent increase), Europe (20.6-percent increase) and even Kia's home country of Korea (4.4-percent increase).

In its 16thth straight year of growth, the Kia brand continues to evolve. Byung Mo Ahn, Group President, KMA, said in a statement, "Kia has become one of the fastest growing car companies in the U.S., and breaking our sales record in less than nine months is the result of our dramatic brand transformation and our diverse lineup."1.
