It looks like deliveries in India will start next week on August 22.


Kia Motors will launch Seltos on August 22, 2019. Along with the launch of Seltos, Kia Motors will enter the Indian market. It was recently reported that the first product of the Kia Motors have so far bagged over 23,300 bookings. It is worth mentioning here that pre-bookings of Kia Seltos was started on July 16 for a token amount of Rs 25,000 and will continue until August 22. The mass production of the upcoming compact SUV has commenced at the company's manufacturing facility in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. Well, here’s a piece of good news for all the buyers of Kia Seltos. Kia Seltos deliveries will start on August 22, the day the compact SUV is launched in India. Yes, you read it right.

It is worth mentioning here that the automaker has currently set up 192 dealerships across 160 cities in India. All these dealerships of Kia Motors feature Kia's internet of things (IOT) theme or the Kia link App. It means that digital purchase and after sales services will be available at all Kia dealerships. Interesting, isn’t it?

Never realized Kia dealers had a 192 strong footprint in India. No wonder they're so focused on India.

I never realized that either, especially in 160 cities. But when you think about how big India is in population and size, it does start to make more sense.

Apparently India will see an economic boom like what China did. Kia is well positioned!

Knowing we won't get the 1.5 Diesel. What do you think it will be instead? My thoughts so far is Kia can really make the case for a 1.4 Turbo. Its the lowest displacement to high power/torque and MPG ratio engine they can offer. AFAIK!`

2.0L MPI, the same one as used in the Soul & Forte, with an optional 1.6L Turbo similar to the power specs that are used on the current Kona for North America.
