Car Sales By Model And Nation Kia : 2014

I'm sure it's nice to lean on, but why not use the seats?

Kia grew 11% which was strong performance. No models dropped and only one added, which is yet to have much impact anyway. That one new model is the K4, a China specific model. You could then expect a flat sales year. Not so. Most models had an increase and many of them are selling well. An obvious model to retire would be the Mohave, which customers are steadily deserting (I just had to say that).

A plant is being built in Mexico, which will lift things again. It will have a 300,000 capacity, opening in 2016. A range of small cars are expected to be assembled there. Kia have done well to get to this size, but the challenge is the next step up.
