The website for Kia India has gone live and the South Korean automaker’s first order of business is to bring in dealers to setup their network in India. In this regard, the automaker will begin a pan-India tour to seek out potential dealers.

Dubbed the Kia Dealer Roadshow, it will, in August, visit four of India’s largest cities: Delhi on 8th and-9 August, Mumbai on 16 and 17 August, Bangalore on 23 and 24 August and finally Kolkata on 1 September. Commenting on the tour, Yong S Kim, head of sales and marketing, Kia Motors India, said “India ranks very high in our list of priorities and Kia Motors India is looking for dealers who want to be leaders – passionate and talented businesses who want to grow and succeed in partnership with the brand.

India is a unique market and it’s important to Kia that we learn from those who have a deep understanding of local buyers and their needs. Like other regions where Kia already has a presence, we will offer Indian customers the highest levels of satisfaction. Our dealer partners hold the key to achieving this aim,” he added.

The South Korean automaker has already announced a factory in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh and will begin local operations there once the brand arrives in India in 2019. Taking a localised approach, Kia will begin its innings with a India specific compact sedan and compact SUV.
