In July, Kia Canada kicked off its Special Summer Celebration which saw the automaker and its dealers raise $165,820 in support of Special Olympics Canada programs and athletes.

Kia Canada has reported that it sold a total of 8,101 of vehicles in July, an eight per cent increase versus the same time period in 2017.

Kia Canada also said that last month’s sales were also the best July ever for the brand. July’s results were led by Sorento (1,524), Soul (1,522) and Sportage (1,456 units).

As part of the Special Summer Celebration campaign and, in addition to other fundraising efforts, Kia Canada and its dealers across the country each donated $10 for every car sold in the month of July.

“Having our best-ever July couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Ted Lancaster, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Kia Canada Inc. “As a proud partner of Special Olympics Canada, everyone at Kia Canada and our dealers across the country are extremely proud of these additional funds we have raised through the sales of our award-winning vehicles.”

“Thank you to Kia Canada and all of your dealers across Canada for your outstanding commitment to Special Olympics Canada,” said Sharon Bollenbach, CEO, Special Olympics Canada. “Kia Canada has gone above and beyond to show its commitment to Special Olympics as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We are thrilled with this additional $165,820 in funding which will go to support over 45,000 athletes from coast to coast to coast continue to challenge their limits and reach their full potential.”
