Kia Motors America (KMA) announces today that sales growth continues as the brand reports the best quarterly sales performance in company history – 140,330 units – on the strength of all-time record June sales.

The June total of 45,044 vehicles represents a 41.2-percent increase from the same period a year earlier. KMA’s year-to-date sales are up 44.1 percent over 2010 thanks to solid sales performances by the U.S.-built (1) Sorento, Soul urban passenger vehicle and the Optima midsize sedan. The results mark the sixth-consecutive quarterly sales record for Kia in the U.S. Kia’s funky Soul remains tremendously popular and posted its best-ever sales of 11,314 units in June.

“Kia has experienced extraordinary momentum and by achieving our sixth straight quarterly sales record it is clear that our fresh lineup continues to attract new consumers to our showrooms as a result of Kia’s aggressive product-led transformation,” said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG).

Soul’s best-ever monthly sales result and the launch of Kia’s first hybrid in June further validates Kia’s strategy of bringing the most innovative, functional, and fuel-efficient products to market. These products are designed to meet and exceed the expectations of today’s consumers at a tremendous value, and with exciting new products like the significantly enhanced 2012 Soul coming this summer and two all-new Rio’s this fall, we are well positioned to continue our growth into the future.” said Byung Mo Ahn.
