The Live Consultation service is now available at 237 Kia dealerships nationwide, while 25 dealers are already currently live streaming the service procedure. Kia India aims to start the live streaming in another 60 dealerships by the end of 2024. The overall customer rating of both platforms has exceeded expectations.
