Kia Motors America today celebrated that sale of the 100,000th Sorento crossover, the brand’s first U.S.-built vehicle from its Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG) in West Point, Georgia.

“Selling 100,000 Sorentos over an 11-month period is an extraordinary achievement for not only the Kia brand, but our first U.S. plant as well, “said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and KMMG.  “This impressive sales milestone demonstrates Kia’s growing brand impact in the U.S., which is a direct result of our ongoing design-led transformation which has delivered a growing stable of new generation Kia vehicles, highlighted by our best-selling Sorento, and will continue into the future with the arrival of several more exciting, stylish and fun to drive products.”

Ever since the Sorento went on sale, it has been the best-selling vehicle for 11 consecutive months and is the first Kia vehicle to eclipse the 100,000 unit mark in the U.S. in one year.
