- Kia sold just 4645 units of Seltos in December 2019.
- Kia Seltos was India's best-seller SUV in Oct & Nov 2019.
- Kia Seltos was launched in India in August 2019.
Kia Seltos has registered its lowest ever monthly sales in December 2019 in the Indian market. The SUV has launched in August 2019 and it had constantly maintained an average monthly sales of 6000+ units but last month, only 4645 units of the Seltos were sold. The company sold more than 14,000 units of the SUV in November 2019 and this 66 percent drop in December sales is something very unimaginable.
Although, the reasons for such a steep decline in sales are not known yet. While some of the major automakers are working on introducing the BS 6 certified models of their vehicles, Kia had already launched the Seltos with BS 6 compliant petrol and diesel engines. For those asking, Kia Seltos was the best-selling model of October & November 2019 in the Indian market. Leave alone the domestic sales, even the exports were also fairly handsome as the South-Korean automaker exported 3800 units of the SUV in November 2019.
Kia Seltos, after being introduced in August 2019, made a smashing impact on Indian buyers due to its feature-packed cabin. Some of the salient features of the SUV are a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, Wireless Charging, Push Start/Stop button, 8-inch HUD and ventilated and 8-way electrically adjustable driver seat, etc. to name a few.
Kia Seltos is offered with a total of three BS 6 certified engine options: 1.5L petrol engine, 1.4L turbocharged petrol, and a 1.5L diesel engine.
