Kia Ceed popular in Romania!
Romanian Kia Rom Auto, the authorised importer of South Korean Kia Motors vehicles, sold 562 cars of the Kia Cee’d model in the first 50 days after its official launch in Romania, exceeding by far its full-2007 expectations, company president Dan Chitaru said on June 22, 2007.
The model was officially launched in Romania on April 26, 2007, when Kia Rom Auto set a sales target of 400 units for 2007.
In view of the soaring sales so far, the company raised its 2007 sales projection for the model to 1,500 cars.
Due to the strong demand, in May 2007 Kia Rom Auto updated its order with Kia Motors factory in the Slovak city of Zilina, which will shorten delivery time to clients from July, Chitaru said.
The importer expects orders to jump significantly from July owing to the introduction of new engine variations of Kia Cee’d, including a 1.6l diesel one of 115 hp, 1.6l petrol engine of 122 hp, 2.0l petrol engine of 143 hp, and a 2.0l diesel one with 140 hp, Chitaru added.
