We have been consistent with our sales in the entire CY22, which is 34% up from last year. Our customer base is increasing rapidly, showing our accuracy in understanding Indian consumers’ needs. The recovery in sales is also a result of the easing supply chain constraints, which is good news for the industry. Not only Kia but the entire 4-wheeler industry has healthy sales in September to cheer about, and then the peak of the festivity is yet to come. We are experiencing increasing demand for our products around the festive season, thus continuing our growth trajectory till the end of CY2022.”

Moreover, Kia India has consistently supported the Indian Government’s goal of producing best-in-class vehicles in India and will continue with the Make-in-India march. In fact, our recent achievement of the 1.5 lakh export milestone within just three years of commencing business in India is another testament to our commitment to the Government’s vision and our Make-in-India-for-the-World” philosophy.”
