I knew Kia has been aggressive in emerging markets but I never realized they had this strong of a presence.

One of the main reasons why it's doing so well appears to that the Indian buyers really like all the features it comes with.

Kia sold 6,325 Seltos' in August making it the 4th highest selling vehicle in India.

Kia Seltos checks in

Kia Motor India’s first product – the Seltos – has made a strong entry into the Top 5 UVs list in the first month of its launch. The Kia Seltos, which was officially launched in India on August 22, sold a total of 6,236 units last month, giving the company a Utility Vehicle market share of 1.72 percent. Kia Motors India, which got 6,046 bookings on a single day when online bookings opened on July 17, currently has over 35,000 bookings in hand and is aggressively driving production at its Anantapur plant to meet the surging demand for its first made-in-India product.

The Seltos is currently produced from two of Kia’s production facilities – in Anantapur District, Andhra Pradesh, India, and in Gwangju, Korea – and has gone on sale in both countries last month. With 6,236 units sold in its first month of sale in India, the made-in-India Seltos has outsold the made-in-Korea Seltos, which saw retail sales of 6,109 units – a difference of 127 units.

Kia really hit the jackpot with the Seltos. Lets see how much longer they can keep up these sales numbers!
It's funny you say that because Kia now has 50,000 bookings for the Seltos.

Inspite of so many sales & bookings still havent seen a single seltos on road. Have booked HTX 1.5 G MT without TD. Still waiting for the TD car to arrive at showrooms in Mumbai.

That's very true, I'd be curious to see how many deliveries have been made so far. How long have you been waiting for your Seltos @KPAAZ?

Have just booked it last week. My SA informed me waiting period for two months. Now lets see. If they will deliver me in December then I would prefer taking it in 2020.
Here's hoping you get it as soon as possible! 'd like to get see some first hand info on what it's like to own.
