The Seltos takes the success which Hyundai achieved with the Creta to the next level. It indeed is the spiritual successor of the Creta in many aspects. The perfect dimensions, multitude of options, and a company backed by Hyundai are writing a blockbuster story.

The question remains however that now will the Creta come in as a seven seater avatar to take the narrative to subsequent measure. Something is cooking at Hyundai definitely.

P.S: When can we expect the Stinger GT or the Telluride to make an appearance?

In simple words Kia's success can be attributed to the company giving their best to Indian customers both in terms of drive train options and features and pricing it sensibly. Honda, VW and Toyota must learn from them.

Kia posts 15,450 for Jan 2020. It might end up as 4th largest or even 3rd largest car manufacturer in India.

They’re enjoying undisputed streak with just one product. It clearly shows their homework in terms of understanding the market & studying it through & through has led to this success that’s not been witnessed by any other manufacturer despite having multiple cars in various segments.

I’m sure Carnival will bring the heat directly to Innova. They’ve plans of getting stinger too which is a dashing car.

With Indians, they know we love tech filled products, good build & a looker with moderate performer, that’s what Seltos did and it gathered not only sales but the market share and took the company to its greatest heights in less than a year. They’ve a good line up of cars that can be called as an arsenal for Kia to get more and more numbers. Perhaps, they might bring down Hyundai as well in the upcoming years. They’re fresh and we are liking it.

Good going Kia

Expected from KIA. They created the necessary hype before launch, came with a product that's desirable and relevant to the current situation.

OT- happy to see Renault in the 6th position. They are also making good strides in the market.

These numbers could be inclusive of Carnival despatch, that said, they have created a significant impact in the market and a year down the lane, Kia will be 3rd largest manufacturer.

Kia Seltos last 6 months average sales ~ 10000 units. Very impressive show by them.
Hyundai sold around 6.5-7 K unites of Creta during the same period. Arrival of 2020 Creta and Harrier will make competition more interesting.

So it's only going to be a matter of months, that KIA is going to be the 3rd largest manufacturer. KIA & MG are classic case study material for anyone who wants to enter Indian market. You give the customer the right car, you get volumes, simple! Ford was the one who came out with CSUV and see how they squandered an opportunity to introduce something like Seltos! Honda is another one. I think they will also wind up their operations here.

I think apart from KIA doing everything right, there is a rising customer trend of buying the latest and flashiest (technologically) item on the market. It might be due to a combination of social media, demographic change, and rapid technological progress.

XUV 500 launched in 2011 yet sold decently till 2017-18 i.e 7 years
Honda City 4th gen launched in 2014 sold till 2017-18 - 4-5 years
Creta launched in 2015 only but new-gen in 2020

Kia's model wise sales in March 2020.

Kia Seltos -7,466 units

Kia Carnival - 1,117 units

Combined exports in March - 2,585 units

Kia claims that Seltos becomes the highest selling SUV in India third time is a row with 7,466 units sales.

Till now, the South Korean carmaker has dispatched 81,784 units of Seltos since its launch in August 2019.
Quote:
"Owing to the global pandemic and countrywide lockdown, Kia Motors India had stopped its wholesale billings on March 16th 2020, avoiding unnecessary unsold inventory at its dealerships. Counting on the booking numbers of Kia cars, the company is expecting a positive sentiment in buyers for Seltos and Carnival after the lockdown period," the company said in a statement.
