Kia Motors America Announces All-Time Best Full-Year Sales And U.S. Market Share For 2012

  • U.S. Sales Exceed 500,000 Vehicles for First Time in Company History; U.S. Market Share Increases for 18th Consecutive Year

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kia Motors America (KMA), which previously announced it had surpassed its best-ever full-year sales total in less than 11 months, today reported all-time record sales in 2012 of 557,599 vehicles, a 14.9-percent increase over the previous best-ever mark set in 2011. As one of the fastest-growing car companies in the U.S. over the last five years[1], December sales of 39,178 units helped to extend KMA's streak of annual market share increases to 18 years.

KMA's sales were led throughout 2012 by the U.S.-built* Optima and that trend continued as the December total of 12,008 units helped the popular midsize sedan become the first Kia nameplate to top 150,000 annual sales. Together with the popular Sorento CUV – also built at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG) – Kia's U.S.-built* vehicles represented more than 40-percent of last year's record-setting volume.

"2012 was an historic year filled with a number of important achievements for the Kia brand including our 18th straight annual market share increase, surpassing the 500,000 unit mark for the first time, and the sale of the four millionth Kia vehicle in the U.S.," said Byung Mo Ahn , group president and CEO of KMA and KMMG. "Kia is advancing value to new levels of sophistication by combining world-class automotive design, cutting-edge technologies and premium amenities with affordable pricing, and the brand's maturation process will continue this year with seven all-new or significantly redesigned vehicles scheduled to arrive in our showrooms over the next 12 months."

      Tesla's March U.S. sales numbers were as follows:
      Model S : 2,275
      Model 3 : 10,175
      Model X : 2175

      The Q1 U.S. total was 30,600 vehicles. This compares to Q4 2018's U.S. total of 77,525 units for a decline of 61%. Musk had warned of both declining volume and an operating loss for Q1, but not to such an extreme extent.

      Model 3 U.S. volume over the last 6 months ~
      Oct '18 : 17,750
      Nov '18 : 18,650
      Dec '18 : 22,250
      Jan '19 : 6,500
      Feb '19 : 5,750
      Mar '19 : 10,175

      The pertinent question stands- what is the true mean monthly demand for the Model 3, and was the volume uptick in Q4 2018 solely due to the upcoming (Jan 1, '19) halving of the tax credit?

      Porsche Reports Record U.S. Retail Sales in March
       
      First quarter sales are up 7.7 percent compared to 2018Atlanta, Georgia. Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of the Porsche 911, 718 Boxster and Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan model lines, today announced March retail sales of 4,779 vehicles, a new all-time high for the month. Following record months in January and February, sales for the first quarter are up 7.7 percent from a year ago to 15,024 vehicles sold. 

      “It has been a month of celebrations for Porsche. First, we claimed the No.1 spot in the 2019 J.D. Power Customer Service Index Study, followed by a record March. This is a testament to our 191 U.S. dealers and their employees, who help ensure our customer experience lives up to the same superb quality as our cars,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “I am grateful customers are already showing this level of Porsche passion at the start of an amazing year that will feature a new 911, a refreshed Macan, and our first purely electric sports car, the Taycan.”

      March results were driven by strong demand for the new Cayenne, with a notable 76.2 percent increase compared to March 2018. Porsche 911 deliveries were up 15.3 percent year-to-date to 2,894, ahead of the next-generation’s arrival later this year. 

      Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales in the U.S. totaled 2,280
      vehicles in March, up 12.6 percent year-over-year.
