The Kia Sonet has topped the sub compact SUV in sales, and we are no surprised!
Kia Motors has been creating wonders in the Indian market ever since its debut here. The same has been further amplified in the most recent sales reports as well. The carmaker recorded stupendous sales figures in the month of November. 21,022 Kia Motors products were sold in November, out of which 11,417 were Sonets ! The overall growth for Kia from the same period last year has been around 50% ! That’s something which you donot get to hear everyday…
Kia’s first product in India was the Seltos. Pitched as a more stylish alternative to the hot-selling Hyundai Creta, the Seltos took no time in becoming a loved pick among the SUV aficionados here. The Carnival MPV which came later also managed to secure a place of its own in the market.
Things, however, escalated to a whole new level with the recent launch of the sub-4 SUV Sonet. With its stylish design, peppy engines, loads of features and smart pricing, the Sonet is amassing strong traction in the market. The Sonet has also claimed for itself the ‘top-selling sub-compact SUV’ badge as well. With the Sonet driving over half of the net sales for Kia India, and the Seltos following with a figure of 9205 units, and the Carnival a mere 400 units, Kia Motors has for sure placed itself among the top 5 best selling car brands in the country.
The best thing about Kia Motor India is that the ongoing pandemic and the associated chaos have not deterred them from catering to the sky-high consumer demands on time. The production at their Anantapur facility has been ensured to go on unhindered and with the safety of its employees well addressed.
