Kia Seltos registers record sales – Becomes best selling SUV in segment

Launched back on 22nd Aug in India, Kia Seltos has registered record sales for the month of Aug 2019. A total of 6,200 Kia Seltos were sold last month, which has made the Seltos one of the best selling SUVs in the country for the month.

Thanks to this record performance, Kia Seltos is now the best selling SUV in the Rs 15 lakh segment. At the launch event, Kia India officials revealed that the total bookings had crossed the 32,000 mark. The company has a production capacity of 3 lakh units a month.

But the Seltos is not produced at full capacity. For now, the production capacity per month is about 5,000 units. This is the reason behind waiting period of about 2-3 months on Kia Seltos across India. Kia Seltos is a rival to the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass, Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks, etc.
