Kia with new models (electric EV6, Sportage) creates sales momentum
This big jump is to some extent a consequence of the recovery of global demand, which slowed down at the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic. Continued growth in sales in key markets, such as e.g. USA.
Kia will continue to focus on implementing the medium-term and long-term business strategy ‘Plan S’, so it will focus more on increasing sales and profitability, which will be enabled by new models, including the new electric model EV6 and the new Sportage.
