The carmaker has currently lined up 3 products for the Indian market. Their first offering will be a compact SUV based on the SP Concept. It is likely to be called Tusker and will compete with cars like the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster. The company plans to build 2 more SUVs in India, which includes a sub-4 metre SUV.

Kia is also considering a few other models from its global line up for India. These include SUVs like the Sportage and Sorento, which could be imported via the CKD route. Recently, there have been reports of Kia evaluating the Grand Carnival MPV and the Stonic compact SUV as well. At present, the company is conducting a market study to find out which model from its global portfolio could be localized and launched in India.

Meanwhile, 65% of the construction at Kia's new manufacturing facility has been completed.

Nice!

It says Govt. vehicle - could be one of those vehicles given complimentary to the A.P Govt. Surprising that there has been no news from KIA on their hybrid vehicles. Whenever they are ready I am sure they will go all out with marketing efforts atleast 6 months prior to launch and build up the hype - just like how they did for Seltos.
