KIA — An Automaker On The Rise
KIA entered the Pakistani automotive market just a few years back. The company is locally assembling cars in Pakistan with a green-field status under the Auto Development Policy (ADP 2016-21). KIA assembly plant has a limit of manufacturing 50,000 car units per year. The company has been working on double shifts since January 2019 and has become the fourth biggest automaker in Pakistan, after Big 3.
Many Pakistanis have fallen head over heels for the KIA Sportage. The SUV has been enjoying a lot of attention from the public, with handsome sales each month. Sportage’s sales outperformed Honda in January 2021, making KIA the third best-selling car brand in Pakistan.
With another player in the game, KIA is going head to head with Pakistan’s Big 3 automakers. Sorento is here to capture the hearts of Pakistani elite car buyers.
