Kia India delivered 8,583 units in March; Seltos retains top-selling SUV position; free service extended by two months
Kia Motors India today announced it has posted healthy sales in March 2020, with 8,583 cumulative units sold by the company. This has enabled Kia Motors India to retain its position as the third-largest car manufacturer in the country, while also placing Seltos as the highest-selling SUV in India for the third consecutive month. Kia halted its wholesale billings on 16 March 2020, avoiding unnecessary unsold inventory at its dealerships due to the global pandemic and countrywide lockdown, it noted. Counting on the booking numbers of Kia cars, the company is expecting a positive sentiment in buyers for Seltos and Carnival after the lockdown period.
Countries and businesses across the globe have come to a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted the automobile industry with production units, offices and dealership suspending all operations temporarily. Kia Motors India said it stands with the entire automobile industry and is working with the State and Central Governments to extend all possible support and assistance to fight and overcome this situation.
Kia Motors Inia has announced the extension of its free service period by two months, in order to keep up with its commitment to provide a best-in-class ownership experience. During this time period, all Kia dealerships are available on call and are accessible for all their requirements through Kia’s various digital channels, the company said. It added that customers can also experience Kia’s online sales system and booking facility on its official website and for more information related to its services.
