KIA Seltos set a record by the number of accepted orders at the start of sales in India


The new compact crossover KIA Seltos set a record by the number of accepted orders at the start of sales in the Indian market - a similar indicator was not achieved before by any model of any manufacturer.

Recall that official sales of Seltos started on August 22nd, 2019, and over 1.5 thousand applications were posted for 1.5 months, the KIA press service informed. On the first day of sales, 6 thousand orders were accepted. In September KIA, the debut of which in the local market was dedicated precisely to the release of the Seltos model, managed to reach a market share of 8.6% in the crossover and SUV segment and the 7th place among all passenger car manufacturers cars in India. For this month, 7,754 units of compact crossovers were delivered to customers.

Due to the high rate of start-up sales, the leadership of the Indian KIA division is considering the possibility of additional production facilities organizing at the Anantapur plant (AndraPradesh state), which is currently designed to produce 300 thousand cars a year. The widely deployed KIA's dealer network by the time of the brand debuted in India plays its role in the successful market entering. Currently, it has 265 official dealerships in 160 cities of the country, which exceeds the size of the networks of the vast majority of automakers in the Indian market.

In the Russian market, the new compact KIA Seltos crossover will appear in 2020. Information about the options for engines, transmissions and equipment of new items for our country will be announced closer to the start of sales.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, the new KIA Seltos crossover will be produced locally for the Russian market, like all KIA models in our country. At the same time, the company is confident that the new product will be able to take a leading position in the SUV-B segment. 

“KIA Seltos will win the potential buyers of the Sportage model, as its cost will be cheaper. Probably, those who were ready to buy the Soul model would also be drawn away from the brand. The main competitor among models of other brands may be Hyundai Creta, possibly Renault Kaptur,” - said Mikhail Chaplygin,the  CEO of Auto-Dealer-SPb.

The press service of Pragmatika Group of Companies noted that young motorists from about 18 to 35 years old could be the main audience of this sport high-tech car.
