Individuals Cannot Get Sufficient Of Electrified Kias

Deliveries of the EV6 jumped by 49 per cent.

This week, we’ve seen mixed fortunes as various automakers reported their sales figures for March and the first quarter of 2022. Audi has struggled to keep up with rival BMW and Volvo also saw its sales numbers decline. However, Korean brands are flying. Hyundai reported record sales and Kia had seen remarkable growth too. Kia’s sales figures reflect continued demand for its SUV lineup and a speedy rate of growth for its electrified models. March returned record sales for Kia’s electrified models with a 55 per cent increase over the previous record. Overall, however, Kia sold 59,524 cars in March, down from 66,523 in March 2021.

In March, Kia sold 3,156 units of the EV6. For the year, EV6 has now registered 5,281 sales. In just its second month in showrooms, EV6 sales increased by nearly 50%. The Niro was similarly impressive, notching 3,964 sales in March to take its tally to 9,226 for the year so far. The complete Niro lineup’s sales jumped by 32 per cent over its previous record monthly sales.

In March, Kia’s top-selling model was the Forte sedan with 9,609 units, followed by the Sportage (7,778) and Telluride (7,668). Other substantial contributions came from the K5/Optima (5,470), Sorento (6,238), and Soul (5,175). Considering its starting price of over $30,000, it’s remarkable that the Telluride is nearly the best-selling model for Kia in 2022 (22,076 units, behind only the Forte at 23,498).
