Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES NOVEMBER - Kia produces a 15.3% increase in sales for the month.

  • Forte and Sportage Post Best-Ever November Totals; Year-to-Date Sales Up 3.8%
Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced record November sales of 52,504 units, a 15.3 percent increase over the same period last year. The brand’s seventh monthly sales record of the year included:
  • Best-ever November sales of the Forte family of compact cars and Sportage CUV
  • Double digit increases over November 2015 for five models: Rio, Soul, Forte, Sportage and Sedona
“With the election occupying everyone’s attention early in the month, sales picked up throughout November and culminated in a strong Black Friday weekend as our ‘Holidays On Us’ sales event drew significant showroom traffic,” said Michael Sprague, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. 

“With third party experts continuing to validate the new Kia as a world-class automaker, and the arrivals of the all-new Cadenza and first-ever turbocharged Soul, we are well positioned to finish strong and carry that momentum into the New Year.”
