Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced best-ever November sales of 37,007 units, a 39.1-percent increase over the same period last year and the company’s 15th straight monthly sales record. Kia is one of the fastest growing car brands in the U.S., having eclipsed 400,000 vehicles sold for the first time in company history in October, and year-to-date sales are up 35.7-percent.
Following the recent start of Optima production at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG), the brand’s U.S.-built products – Sorento and Optima – were the top performers for the second consecutive month with 9,669 and 9,533 vehicles sold, respectively.
“Kia’s growth has far outpaced the industry all year and the brand’s design-led transformation has raised awareness for the brand and attracted new customers to our showrooms to experience our diverse lineup that offers world-class style, performance, technology and safety features,” said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and KMMG. “Kia has introduced more new vehicles over the past three years than any other auto manufacturer and the latest addition is the all-new Rio 5-door, which is 85-percent recyclable at the end of its lifespan and delivers up to 40 miles per gallon”.
