Kia is UP by a massive 8.3 per cent even though the market has fallen by 4.6 per cent, this also includes their year to date total which is up by 5.6 per cent compared to that of 2018, which we are extremely proud of!
The Kia Sportage is available at our Eastbourne and Washington Kia branch and to date remains our BEST SELLER.
To put this into perspective
Kia Motors (UK) Limited continued its improved performance in 2019 with a best-ever May sales figure of 7,279 – an increase of eight per cent compared to 2019 and ahead of the 2016 record of 6,912.
So far Kia has delivered 44,705 vehicles in 2019 to customers in the UK which is an increase of 5.6 per cent compared to the same period of last year. Kia’s alternative fuelled vehicles also reached new heights with 4,066 sold, including the remarkable all-new e-Niro that won both the Driving Electric and What Car? Car of the Year awards.
Kia have yet again hit another record in May, with the Sportage, Picanto, Niro and Ceed performing exceptionally well!
The Kia Sportage, available at Eastbourne and Washington Kia retained its “most popular” position with customers, attracting 2,564 new owners. The Kia Picanto maintained its second place with 1,287 sold. The all-new Ceed, Stonic and Niro family, also available at Eastbourne Kia completed Kia’s top-five proving its position within the current dealerships.
Philpott, President and Chief Executive of Kia Motors UK said: “It is encouraging that most of our growth in May came from retail customers especially as this sector remains very competitive. To be number eight in the rank of manufacturers in the UK is tribute to the efforts of our dealers, the excellent product coming from our factories and the faith customers have in us. But with another fall in the overall new car market we will not be complacent and seek to continue to make a compelling offer to new car buyers.
“We shall also make the most of the just-announced XCeed crossover that will reach showrooms later this year. This fourth member of the European-built Ceed family will give motorists even more choice and will provide our dealers with an unrivalled range of attractive, flexible products to suit the needs of any driver”.
Eastbourne and Washington Kia stocks a wide range of new and used vehicles including the all-new Kia Ceed, with prices starting from just £18,295.
