Kia celebrated eight months of record sales (January, February, June, July, August, September, October and December) including their best-ever month in Canadian history, in August.
Kia sold 72,452 units in 2020, with top models Forte and Sorento among the best-selling models, and newcomer Seltos emerging as a consumer favourite.
“During a year where Canadians were looking for vehicles that could not only meet their needs, but that they could rely on for quality and safety, we are grateful that we can deliver on products that satisfy both,” says Elias El-Achhab, Chief Operating Officer at Kia Canada. “We’re thankful for the incredible year we’ve had in 2020 and are looking forward to carrying this momentum into 2021 with the launch of the all-new, redesigned Sorento arriving in dealers now,” he adds.
