KIA Sells 12 Months of Cars in 10 Months

KIA has already broken its sales record by selling more cars in the first 10 months of 2012 than in the whole of 2010, KIA's previous best year.

Sales of 4,837 vehicles in October pushed the year-to-date sales to 57,736 units - 1,622 more than the record 2010 full year figure when 56,114 vehicles were sold.

Sales in October were 12.4 per cent up on the same month last year whilst the year-to-date sales are currently 21.5 per cent up.  KIA's market share for October was 3.2 per cent with a total year-to-date share of 3.26 per cent, up from 2.82 per cent at the same time last year.

Commenting on the performance Michael Cole, Managing Director, KIA Motors (UK) Limited said: "It's great to have passed our record 2010 total with two months of the year to go. Our recently revised product line-up is proving popular with customers and it's thanks to our excellent dealer network that even without the Scrappage Scheme that we had two years ago that we continue to increase our appeal amongst both private and business users."
