Kia To Make India Debut At Auto Expo 2018; World Premiere Of SP Concept SUV

Kia will showcase 16 global models at the expo.

 

South Korea’s Kia Motors (a subsidiary of Hyundai Motors Group) will be making its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018 next week. The company will be showcasing 16 of its global model line-up at the expo, but the highlight will be the SP Concept SUV which will make its world premiere at the show.

 

The SP Concept will showcase Kia’s new future SUV for the Indian market. The company says that it has been “inspired by Indian heritage and driven by advanced technology.” The SP Concept will be the size of the Creta and the teaser images reveal a prominent waistline, slim LED headlamps and tail-lamps, and flared wheelarches.

 

Han-Woo Park, President of Kia Motors Corporation, commented: “All of us at Kia Motors are extremely proud to take our first steps into one of world’s largest automotive markets. And we are here to build more than just great cars. We aim to set a new standard in the Indian auto industry by providing consumers with world-class products and services, while engaging with and giving back to the local community.”

 

The 16 global models which Kia will showcase will include the new Stinger gran turismo and a range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

 

Kia is building a factory in Andhra Pradesh with a capacity to produce approximately 300,000 vehicles. It is investing US $ 1.1 billion (₹ 7053 crores) to build the factory spread over 536 acres with stamping, welding, painting and assembly facilities. The first models from the site are expected to roll-out in the second half of 2019 with the first models being a India-specific compact sedan and a compact SUV (the SP concept).
