Kia has record July sales

JonathanAugust 7, 2013

UK Carline only stock the best models of cars from a variety of manufacturers which have demonstrated that they are popular with consumers and are building some of the best vehicles on the market.

One of the carefully-selected makers that we stock is Kia which has shown over the past month (July) that it is gaining in popularity and becoming a favourite choice among consumers.

The manufacturer broke its sales record in July selling more than 6,000 models to its customers, which is a significant boost from the same period last year. With the tough economy and everyone being extra careful with their paychecks, this is no easy feat for any brand.

Overall sales from this year have rocketed to more than 43,200 which gave them a 3.26 per cent share of the market. This did show a slight decrease on its share of the market last year but 2013 has seen the entire industry grow by 12.5 per cent so it is an impressive result for the firm.

Powering forward Kia’s incredible performance was the Sportage with more than 1,700 customers receiving this premium quality vehicle in July alone. This was closely followed by the Kia Ceed with just over 1,360 sales last month. UK Carline offer both these models on competitive car leasing contracts so no matter what your budget or purpose, you can be behind the wheel of either of these popular models.

Over the entire year, the Kia Sportage and Ceed took the top sales positions with 12,433 and 8,743 purchases respectively.

The Picanto, Rio and Venga finished Kia’s top five models for the month selling more than 2,300 models together in July.

Paul Philpott, president and chief executive of Kia Motors UK Limited said: “We have set new sales records almost every month this year and clearly our excellent dealer network and our line-up of stylish, high quality cars, backed by the best warranty in the business, is a strong attraction as the new car market continues to show the way out of the recession.”
