Kia India, the fastest-growing carmaker of the country, registered healthy sales of 14,441 units in September 2021. The company became the fourth most sold carmaker of India with a market share of 7.8%, an increase of 1.4% Y-o-Y. Seltos became the highest contributing model with 9,583 units, making it the highest selling SUV of the month. The Sonet and Carnival continued their healthy run with 4,454 and 404 unit sales, respectively.
Mr Hardeep Singh Brar, Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing, Kia India said, “Our strong products backed by the relentless efforts of our teams and partners have enabled us to continue our strong run as one of the top automakers in the country despite the prolonged global semiconductor shortage. The disruption in the supply chain has put a brake on the improving industry sentiment last month. As the festive period approaches, we are hopeful to see some improvement in semiconductor procurement. For the time being, we are taking all the measures to optimise the production and keep the waiting period of our vehicles in check.”
In the 25th month of its sales operation, Kia India has sold almost 3.3 Lakh vehicles, with Sonet crossing the one lakh sales milestone in the month. The company’s success in the market reflects its deep understanding of its customer profile, requirements, and aspirations and catering them with the right products and services. Earlier this month, the company rejigged the variant line-up of the Carnival that now sports Kia’s new corporate logo giving a fresh new look to the vehicle. The refreshed edition of the Carnival premium MPV is now available in four exciting trim levels – Limousine+, Limousine, Prestige, and Premium.
