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.
