Rio, Soul, Optima and Sportage Post Double-Digit Year-Over-Year Increases

IRVINE, Calif., March 1, 2019 – Kia Motors America today announced February sales of 43,406 vehicles, up 6.7-percent over the same period last year. The month also saw the first retail deliveries of the all-new 2020 Telluride SUV which was designed in California and is assembled in West Point, Georgia1.

“Kia continued to gain valuable sales momentum in February as consumers took delivery of the first Telluride models to hit showrooms,” said Bill Peffer, vice president, sales operations, Kia Motors America. “With the all-new Soul expected to join Telluride in dealerships over the next few weeks, we have a tremendous one-two new product punch which will continue driving traffic to Kia dealerships through the first quarter.”
