Kia Motors America recently announced its December sales totals of 51,229 units, which marked an 8-percent gain over the same period last year.
Total sales for 2019 were 616,338 units, a 4.4-percent increase over the previous year and the third best annual performance in Kia’s history. The Telluride boosted Kia's sales and the Sportage SUV recorded best-ever annual sales for the second consecutive year.
Despite a declining market, Kia’s retail sales grew by 7.4 percent last year. However, fleet sales have been at their lowest volume since 2014.
"This past year was truly historic for the Kia brand," Kia Motors America Vice President of Sales Operations Bill Peffer said in a press release. "The automotive market is constricting, yet Kia's retail sales are up and our fleet sales are at their lowest point since 2014. Telluride captured consumer attention, but our entire world-class model lineup kept consumers interested in the brand and propelled Kia's sales growth. We look forward to continuing this momentum into the New Year starting with the all-new 2021 Seltos SUV going on sale during the first quarter."
