The cee’d represents 90% of Kia sales in Romania
The five door cee’d was launched in Romania last year and it immediately became one of the best selling C-segment cars in the country.
Initial strong demand from the first two months, when its sales exceeded the overall 2007 sales expectations, was further fueled later in that year, when cee’d won the Car of the year title in Romania.
The cee’d is now Kia’s biggest seller in Romania and it’s sales performance so far looks really outstanding. In the first five months, more than 3000 cee’ds rolled off the dealer’s showrooms, representing almost 90 percent of all Kia cars sold in Romania. Compared to the first five months of last year, it’s sales increased by almost 50 percent!
Strong sales performance of the cee’d has also helped the Kia brand to enter the list of top ten largest automakers in Romania, for the first time since the company entered the market. With addition of the Pro_cee’d and cee’d SW models to the range earlier this year, Kia’s sales is expected to gain another momentum in the coming months. [Source: Tmctv]
