Kia Motors, the new entrant in the Indian market, has sold 6,200 units of its first product Seltos in August 2019, beating some of the established players in the country. The Seltos was launched in India on 22 August 2019. Interestingly, Kia sold 6,109 units of Seltos at its home market in South Korea.

Sales outside of Korea totaled 185,509 units, a 3 percent year-on-year increase in part due to the release of the compact SUV Seltos in the Indian market in August.

Globally, Kia sold 228,871 units in August 2019, a 2.1 percent increase compared to the same period last year. Kia also said that the company’s best selling model was the Sportage SUV with 37,775 units sold worldwide in August 2019. Outside Korea, the Sportage SUV led the sales once again with 36,290 units, followed by the Rio (Pride) and the K3 (Forte) subcompact sedans with 24,704 and 22,167 units, respectively.
