Kia Motors America Announces Record November Sales

  • Forte and Sportage Post Best-Ever November Totals; Year-to-Date Sales Up 3.8%

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced record November sales of 52,504 units, a 15.3 percent increase over the same period last year. The brand's seventh monthly sales record of the year included:

  • Best-ever November sales of the Forte family of compact cars and Sportage CUV
  • Double digit increases over November 2015 for five models: Rio, Soul, Forte, Sportage and Sedona

"With the election occupying everyone's attention early in the month, sales picked up throughout November and culminated in a strong Black Friday weekend as our 'Holidays On Us' sales event drew significant showroom traffic," said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. "With third party experts continuing to validate the new Kia as a world-class automaker, and the arrivals of the all-new Cadenza and first-ever turbocharged Soul, we are well positioned to finish strong and carry that momentum into the New Year."
