When you build great cars with choices available for just about everyone success is sure to follow. Kia posted their best ever sales for the month of August and their recent success is not surprising when you get behind the wheel of one of the great Kia vehicles here at Folsom Lake Kia.
Kia sold a record 52,025 vehicles during the month of August, 2013 for an increase of 4 percent compared to last year. Leading the charge was the 2013 Kia Optima with sales of 15,199, continuing its 21-month streak as top seller overall. The all-new 2014 Kia Cadenza topped 1,500 for its second straight month.
Kia has seen increases in sales of their vehicles for the last four years straight and 2012 was an especially noteworthy year. In 2012 Kia reached a milestone with 500,000 vehicles sold, and Kia isn’t slowing down any time soon. Kia has invested approximately $1.4 billion in the US market during the last ten years. Additionally, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point, Georgia, the first manufacturing facility in the US for the company, has directly and indirectly provided 14,000 manufacturing and supplier jobs.
“Our award-winning products deliver on Kia’s promise to combine world-class design with cutting-edge technologies and premium amenities, and with the all-new Soul scheduled to arrive in showrooms soon, our sales momentum is poised to continue through the end of the year,” remarked Byung Mo Ahn, Kia Motors America and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia Group President and CEO.
There’s a great Kia vehicle for everyone. Whether it’s the all-new 2014 Kia Soul, the exciting 2014 Kia Sorento crossover vehicle, the 2014 Kia Cadenza premium sedan, or the fun-to-drive 2013 Kia Optima, El Dorado Hills and Folsom drivers are sure to find just the right vehicle – and the record sales numbers are great evidence.
“Exemplified by the redesigned Sorento and all-new Cadenza and Forte sedans, Kia product offerings are more refined than ever, bringing a new level of sophistication to buyers seeking more features and options at affordable prices,” Byung Mo Ahn said.
