With 12,277 new cars sold across the country Kia recorded its best-ever month in the UK new-car market, selling 12,277 new cars. In the first three months of the year, Kia sold 20,673, almost as many as it sold in the entire 2003.
Kia's sales almost doubled compared to March 2009, showing a 93.5 per cent increase.
"The industry as a whole is showing how the market has recovered from the dark depths of economic gloom at this time last year," Yaser Shabsogh, Sales Director at Kia Motors said in a release.
Kia's sales grew 140 percent, a dramatic increase compared to first quarter last year, bringing the carmaker's market share to 4.45 percent.
"The success of Kia in the first quarter shows that the brand has become a true mainstream competitor amongst retail customers and that is a tribute to the efforts of our dealers over the past year and more." added Yaser Shabsogh.
