The overall sales were notable for the company, especially with the onset of the festive season where the demand is expected to go even higher, it added.

"We are witnessing a strong surge in customer demand from across the markets, and we're confident that it will grow even further with the onset of the festive season," Kia Motors India Managing Director and CEO Kookhyun Shim said.

It is good to see the numbers rebounding with the market slowly coming back on track as the customers are going ahead with their long-held purchases, he added.

"We are extremely happy with the way we have performed in the past couple of months and are confident of continuing this success beyond Diwali as well. Keeping this in mind, we are now considering to start the third shift in our plant to meet the rapidly growing demand for our products in India," Shim noted.

The company has an installed production capacity of 3 lakh units per annum at its manufacturing facility in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh. PTI MSS ANU ANU
