The Kia Seltos has been a runaway hit. After all, such pricing, varied powertrain and transmission combinations as well as future proof is going to be a hit. It pays that the SUV is good looking too. Since launch in Augus, the Kia Seltos has consistently been selling more than 6,000 units each month. In October 2019, the Seltos recorded more than 12,850 units. More than 60,000 bookings have been registered and around 27,000 units have already found new homes.
Given the slump that the auto market is seeing right now, it is no surprise that Kia has managed to make it to the top five. With a single product, the Seltos, Kia now rubs shoulders with the Marutis and Hyundais. It has displaced Honda. Kia Seltos currently has a six month waiting period. Kia has recently started a second shift at its Anantapur plant in Hyderabad. At launch, taking a jibe at MG, Kia said it will not close the bookings as the brand’s plant is fully capable of meeting the rising demand for the Seltos.
Speaking of MG, even they are doing respectable 3,000+ numbers each month. The capacity is the restraint and a second shift is set to start this month. These two newcomers have shown the industry that they have beat the slowdown. We have reviewed the new Kia Seltos. You should definitely take a look at our video and text reviews.
