Recently, the automaker celebrated 1.5 lakh sales milestone of Kia Sonet within a span of two years since its launch, back in September of 2020. Kia has also launched the EV6 electric vehicle in the country last month at a starting price of ₹59.95 lakh. The vehicle has been already sold out for the year with deliveries scheduled to begin from September.
The company said that it has been achieving these milestones despite global supply chain constraints. “This wouldn't have been possible without our customers' trust in the brand," said Hardeep Singh Brar, Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing, Kia India. He added, “The immense love we are getting from the people of India is the result of the strong foundation of Kia in the country, backed by extensive research and customer-centricity."
Addressing concerns related to waiting period on its models, Brar said that Kia India is taking “adequate measures to optimise the production" and deliver vehicles to customers at the earliest date possible.
