Kia Motors America (KMA) today reported sales in excess of 50,000 units for the second straight month, as the all-new 2014 Cadenza reached the 1,000 unit mark for the first time following the launch of the flagship sedan’s national marketing campaign.

With 50,536 total vehicles sold, the U.S.-built Optima midsize sedan was the brand’s best seller for the 19th consecutive month, and together with the Sorento CUV – also built in West Point, Georgia – accounted for more than 40 percent of Kia’s June sales. The Soul urban passenger vehicle also recorded strong monthly sales of 11,287 units. 

Kia is in the midst of launching seven all-new or significantly redesigned vehicles this calendar year, including the 2014 Sorento CUV and Cadenza and Forte sedans on sale now. Later this year, all-new versions of the Soul, Forte Koup and Forte 5-door, as well as a refreshed Optima midsize sedan, are scheduled to arrive in showrooms. Each of these new products continues Kia’s commitment to advancing value to new levels of sophistication by combining world-class design with cutting-edge technologies, premium amenities and affordable pricing.
