Kia promises dealers an extra 100,000 units in 2012

Kia has promised its dealers 100,000 more units this year than last year as it keeps strong in its efforts to keep the Korean brand’s momentum going.

“It’s a work in progress, but that’s our goal,” said Tom Loveless, vice president of sales for Kia Motors America.

If the move is made, an extra 100,000 units would be a 20 percent increase for Kia in 2012. The Korean automaker sold a total of 485,492 units in 2011, a 36 percent jump over 2010.

Kia showrooms faced a tight supply during most of 2011 due to high global demand that put a strain on the company’s production capacity.
