Kia Motors Corp. said Tuesday its sales increased 2 percent last month from a year earlier on robust demand for its sport utility vehicle (SUV) models.

 

Kia Motors sold 256,019 vehicles in November, up from 250,952 units a year ago, the company said in a statement.

Domestic sales gained 3.9 percent on-year to 50,523 units last month. Overseas sales climbed 1.6 percent to 205,496 units despite the COVID-19 pandemic during the same period, it said, according to Yonhap News Agency.

From January to November, its sales fell 6.1 percent on-year to 2.39 million units due to weak demand abroad amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SUV Sportage was the bestselling model with sales of 35,950 units in the global market, followed by the compact SUV Seltos and K3 compact sedan, it said.
