Kia recently built its one-millionth vehicle in the U.S. by rolling out a snow white pearl 2014 Sorento SXL.
"Building 1 million vehicles in less than four years is a tremendous achievement and one that each one of our more than 3,000 team members can take great pride in," said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO for Kia Motors America and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia. "People are the heart and soul of this company, and our team members' commitment to world class quality is one of the major driving forces behind Kia's unprecedented sales and market share growth in the U.S. over the last few years."
The automaker also noted that it is responsible for the creation of 11,000 jobs and that June marked the 19th consecutive month in which the Optima has been the top-selling vehicle in the country,
Kia has made plans to launch seven all-new or redesigned vehicles before this year is over, including the 2014 Sorento CUV, as well as the Cadenza and Forte sedans, all of which are on sale now.
