Kia Motors overseas sales rise in April
Kia Motors announced that its overseas retail sales of passenger cars and light trucks in April 2005 recorded 69,908 units, representing a 36 per cent increase over last year.
Of those, 29,785 units were sold in North America. Kia attributes much of it to rising sales of the all-new Sportage compact SUV, and the Cerato, sold in North America as the Spectra. An upcoming all-new Rio is expected to further accelerate the sales momentum.
