Kia Global Sales Hit 226,842 Units
« on: January 08, 2018, 06:48:51 AM »
Kia Motors Corporation has announced its December 2017 global sales figures for passenger cars, recreational vehicles (RVs) and commercial vehicles, recording a total of 226,842 units sold.

Last December, sales in Korea slid by 6.2 per cent compared with the same month last year, totalling 46,502 units on weakening sales of Picanto (known as Morning in Korea) minicar.

The company?s overseas sales totalled 180,340 units in December, which represents a 19.6 per cent decline compared to the same month a year earlier due to slower sales in China.

Last last year, Kia Motors posted global sales of 2,746,188 units, decreasing 7.8 per cent from 2016. Sales in Korea declined 2.5 per cent to 521,550 units and overseas sales retreated nine per cent to 2,224,638.

Kia?s best-selling model in overseas markets was the Sportage compact SUV with 415,558 units sold. The Rio (known as ?Pride? in Korea) was the second best seller with 379,184 units sold, followed by the K3 compact sedan (known as ?Forte? in some markets) with 364,054 units sold.

The auto giant will unveil a new electric concept car and present the brand?s vision for future mobility at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Combining Kia?s design strengths with a highly efficient battery-electric powertrain, the new concept represents the next step in the brand?s ongoing journey to electrification. The concept also features a never-seen-before human-machine interface (HMI) and an advanced new ?motion graphic? lighting system, previewing the potential for these technologies for market introduction in coming years.

Alongside Kia?s new concept, the brand will reveal a range of new in-car features and innovations at CES 2018.

Kia?s interactive ?Beyond autonomous driving? exhibits combine existing and future technologies to outline the company?s plans for vehicle autonomy and mobility, supported by the introduction of upcoming autonomous drive technologies.

Kia will present three interactive, Co*kpit-style exhibits designed to show how the company will incorporate new technologies to enhance communication and interaction between occupants and vehicles. These include new advanced driver assistance technologies and pioneering HMI functions, as well as the world?s first in-car 5G connection.

?Virtual reality, self-driving cars, and full vehicle connectivity were all once considered technologies of the distant future. As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers. At CES we will share our strategy and vision for future mobility, and exhibit a range of advanced technologies that our customers can look forward to,? Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, the Vice Chairman/Head, Hyundai-Kia R&D Centre, said.
