Kia Motors Corporation has announced its April global sales figures for passenger cars, recreational vehicles (RVs) and commercial vehicles, recording a total of 240,028 units sold, increasing 9.3 per cent from last year.
Last month, sales in Korea totalled 50,004 units, representing an increase of 14.9 per cent compared with the same month last year led by strong sales of K3 compact sedan (known as ‘Forte’ in some markets) and K900.

The company’s overseas sales also grew by 7.9 per cent compared to the previous year, posting 190,024 units with strong sales of Rio (known as ‘Pride’ in Korea).
