Kia Seltos has gotten off to a great start. The compact SUV had registered over 35,000 bookings even before its launch. In August 2019, the Seltos recorded a total sales of 6,200 units and became the best selling SUV in its segment. The sterling response, however, has now led the SUV’s waiting period to go up to 4 months in select cities.
Production of the Kia Seltos takes place at the carmaker’s Anantpur plant in Andhra Pradesh. The manufacturing facility currently has a production capacity of 3 lakh units annually.
The Korean carmaker aims to export the Made-in-India Seltos to markets like South America, South Asia and South Africa. Kia Motors kick started its Indian operations with 206 sales points across 160 cities. Read – Kia Seltos Vs Hyundai Creta
