Kia has announced yet another period of impressive growth in the UK automotive markets, as it smashed more records in terms of sales.
The manufacturer continued its strong performance in 2012 with a fifth consecutive record month as it sold 11,608 vehicles to customers throughout September, one of the busiest times within the automotive calendar.
Officials noted that this figures represented a 19.3 per cent increase on the previous year’s total and means that Kia has sold 52,899 cars across the entirety of 2012, a huge 22.3 per cent improvement on 2011.
The sales also helped Kia increase its market share to 3.23 per cent, a rise from 2.93 per cent in the previous year.
Michael Cole, managing director of Kia Motors (UK) Limited, said: “2012 continues to be a very strong year for us – September was our fifth record-breaking month in a row and our second best ever – and is testament to the appeal to UK motorists of all the new models that we’ve launched in recent months.”
