May is Good For Kia Motors America!

Another month has gone by and we are ready to wrap up the final elements that have marked the previous month.

For Kia Motors America, May was a very good period, raising the sales with 7.4% (51,771 units) as compared to the same month, last year.

The best girls in Kia were Optima (13,364), Sorento (11,077), Soul (10,146), Forte (7,782), Rio subcompact (4,019), Sportage (3,467) and Sedona minivan (1,916).

And according to Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and KMMG, we have every reason to be proud because:“Kia has experienced dramatic growth over the past few years, and our record-breaking momentum continues as we gather industry-wide recognition for reliability, low cost of ownership, increased residual values and outstanding brand loyalty.”

It doesn’t matter if we agree or not. Numbers don’t lie!

Kia Sales Go Over The Top!

March was not only a good month for fiestas and stuff, but it was also a good month for sales. Probably there are some connections between the International Women’s Day and the high sales in cars, but we prefer not to comment it.

But it it true. The sales for Kia have surpassed 57,505 units during March 2012.  Kia’s top jeweleries are Optima sedan with 15,008, followed by Kia Soul (13,067) and Sorento with 10,303 units.

The other models must not be forgotten either since they brought Kia a total number of 8,381 (Kia Forte), 3,643 (Kia Sportage) and 2,054 (Sedona minivan).

So, from all of this, we know that Kia has achieved several goals: is developing faster than any other carmaker in the US, has 3 models which surpassed the 10,000 units sales mark and managed to sell over 50,000 cars in only ONE month.

What’s it tell us?

Kia is THE ONE!
