Kia has produced one million cars in India in just four years. The company has also expanded its sales and service network. Kia aims to increase its market share to 10 percent by entering new segments. The company has a factory in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. The company started selling the Seltos in the country about four years ago. The vehicle that completed the company’s 1 million unit production milestone is the facelifted Seltos.
Last month, the sales of the Seltos SUV crossed five lakh units in India. The company says that it is the fastest SUV to achieve this sales figure in the country. It competes with SUVs like Hyundai’s Creta and Maruti Suzuki’s Grand Vitara. The Seltos has been the best selling model in the country for Kia for the last four years. It accounts for more than 50 percent of the company’s sales. It is also the most exported model of the company in overseas markets. The company has exported more than 1.35 lakh units of its indigenously made to many countries.
