Seltos SUV helps Kia sustain sales charge in August1 min read . Updated: 01 Sep 2021, 03:05 PM IST
Kia sold 8,619 units of Seltos, followed by 7,752 units of Sonet in the Indian market.
Kia India on Wednesday announced it clocked sales of 16,750 units in the month of August which helped it register a nearly 55% year-on-year growth. A bulk of the contribution to the sales figures was courtesy Seltos' continued strong showing, one that could receive a further boost with the launch of Seltos X Line top trim.
Seltos was the debut model for Kia in India back in August of 2019 and the company sold 8,619 units of Seltos SUV in the previous month. Over two lakh units of Seltos have been sold in the country so far. Sonet is a close second with 7,752 dispatches in August alone. Then there is the Carnival luxury MPV aimed at a niche category. The company sold 397 units of the vehicle last month.
