He further said, "This heartening response to our first product in this aspirational category is a proof of the power of Kia Brand in India. It is also clear that there was an unmet demand for a world-class product like the Carnival in India."

Shim said the company's priority now is to ensure that Carnival reaches its customers at the earliest.

Carnival will be launched in the market at the upcoming Auto Expo in February.

It is being offered in three variants -- Premium, Prestige and Limousine -- with multiple seating configurations of 7, 8 and 9.

"Around 64 per cent of the overall bookings received so far is for the top-of-the-line Limousine trim," the company said.

The model is powered by a 2.2 litre BS 6 diesel engine paired with 8-speed transmission.

It has features such as dual panel electric sunroof, VIP seats with 10.1-inch dual touchscreen rear seat entertainment system, one-touch power sliding door and smart power tailgate among others.
