Kia has best ever month of sales in March

Kia sold more vehicles in the UK last month than ever before, with 12,609 vehicles shipped to customers.



This helped to contribute to the company's best first quarter since the peak of the government's scrappage scheme in 2010.


Over the three months, Kia sold 19,204 vehicles, which amounted to a 3.17 per cent share of the new car market. This figure is up 12 per cent on the same period last year, while the sales data for March is up 13 per cent on the 11,178 last year.



The most popular car in the first quarter was the Sportage, which topped the best-selling list for the first time ever. The Picanto came in second, followed by the Rio.



"This is a fantastic result for Kia and its dealer network and is the culmination of a lot of hard work by our dealers," said Paul Philpott, president and chief executive of Kia Motors.



"At a time when there is still a lot of uncertainty over big ticket item spending our performance shows the importance of good quality product with a still-untouchable seven year warranty delivered by dealers who care about their customers."
