Kia Posts Record Sales

By Staff Writer November 06, 2020

Kia Motors America posted October sales of 56,094 units, marking both the best-ever total October sales volume and the best-ever October retail sales volume in company history.

Kia’s total volume sales posted a 12.2-percent increase and retail sales grew by 18.9-percent over the same period last year. Sales were led by the award-winning Telluride SUV, which set an all-time monthly record of 9,697 units sold. The all new K5 midsize sedan also reached new heights as sales increased for the fourth consecutive month to a best-ever 7,528 units.

Kia’s range of light trucks – Soul, Seltos, Sportage, Sorento, Telluride and Sedona – accounted for 64-percent of sales in October, marking a 9.6-percent increase over the same period last year.

“Kia continues to outpace the industry, delivering record sales in October and doing so with double-digit growth in average transaction price over the same period last year,” said Bill Peffer, a vice president at Kia Motors America. “Our growing lineup is one of the youngest and most exciting in the business, and as we continue to attract new and different customers to the brand, we are confident that we’ll close this year strong and build on the momentum into the first quarter and beyond.”
