      KIA MOTORS AMERICA ANNOUNCES MARCH SALES

      Year-Over-Year Sales Up 10.2-Percent More Than 8 Million Kia Vehicles Sold in the U.S. Since 1994 
      IRVINE, Calif., April 2, 2019 – Kia Motors America today announced March sales of 55,814 vehicles, up 10.2-percent over the same period last year and marking the brand’s best first quarter performance since 2016.  The increase in sales was propelled by the all-new Telluride SUV, with 5,080 units sold during the vehicle’s first full month of nationwide availability. In addition, March also saw the brand surpass more than 8 million Kia vehicles sold since entering the U.S market in 1994.

      “Demand for the all-new Telluride has exceeded our own high expectations and the increased showroom traffic helped Kia to a strong first quarter close,” said Bill Peffer, vice president, sales operations, Kia Motors America.  “As we begin the second quarter with a new advertising campaign for the 2020 Soul, we anticipate consumer interest in the Kia brand will continue to grow well into the spring and summer sales period.”

      Kia unveiled two SUV concepts at the Seoul Motor Show this week.  Both concepts preview design directions for the brand.
      First up is the Kia Masterpiece (Shown Above and right).  Sporting a profile similar to the Kia Telluride, the Masterpiece is a take on a more rugged SUV.  The front end shows off a new variation of Kia's Tiger Nose grille that extends outwards across the entire of the concept with 12 vertical bars in a Hummer-like fashion. The body has been raised and it has a strong all-wheel drive system to match its go-anywhere looks. 
      Secondly is the Signature Concept (Shown Below). This is an update to the Kia SP Concept that was seen late last year and is slated to come to the US at some point.  Kia says that this concept is nearly production ready and the production version will be revealed later in 2019.  Up front, the Tiger Nose grille connect to thin LED lamps. Its strong shoulder line, with a glasshouse which tapers towards the rear of the car, lends the compact SUV an air of understated sportiness.

      Kia fully unveiled their all-electric concept car at the Geneva International Auto Show today.  
      Kia's design team exploited the flexibility of an electric chassis architecture to maximize cabin space to create a spacious interior.  They drew together elements of a muscular SUV, a sleek sedan, and a spacious crossover into a single vehicle that purposely does not fit into any one classification. 
      The concept pokes a bit of fun at the industry's current obsession with screens by creating gauge cluster made of 21 individual high-resolution screen curved over the dashboard.

      The Imagine by Kia is not destined for production, however, design elements from the vehicle show the direction Kia may take on its future cars and SUVs.
