Kia Hits UK Sales Record

Kia Motors UK has recorded record sales making it more popular than sliced bread.

Kia Motors UK has recorded record sales making it more popular than sliced bread. As such, this sandwich loving manufacturer delivered 11,608 vehicles in September 2012, which represents a staggering 19.3% increase compared to the same period last year. Time to celebrate with a cheese sandwich, then. These sales enabled Kia Motors to secure 3.23% market share for the month - up from 2.93% in 2011. Furthermore, year-to- date sales have now reached 52,899 which is a delicious 22.3% rise over 2011. Market share for the year is, therefore, 3.26% rather than the 2.78% recorded last year. How tasty.

Michael Cole, Managing Director of Kia Motors UK, revealed: “With a quarter of the year to go we have already surpassed the total sales volume we achieved in 2009, and are on track for our best ever year in the UK as well as in other markets across the globe.”

Kia Motors UK has been successful for several reasons. First and foremost, it now produces capable vehicles that – in some cases – match or trump more fashionable competitors. The all-new cee'd is particularly impressive thanks to its practicality, sharp styling, and respectable build quality. The Kia Picanto and Kia Rio earn plaudits too. The manufacture is also clearly in touch with the economic times. As such, while motorists struggle to cope with a challenging economy and high fuel prices, Kia produces affordable cars with seven year warranties. Ever tried taking your sandwich for repair after six years?
