Perhaps we can entice you with a little story-telling on the ol’ Kia that might make you want to stay in the family after you’ve sold your car. This company goes way back, and they’re still looking forward.

 

Founded in 1944 as Kyungsung Precision Industry, Kia Motors is South Korea’s oldest automobile manufacturer. Originally creating steel pipes and bicycle parts, the company was the first to produce a complete domestic bicycle in 1951 when it changed its name to KIA. People caught on to the bikes and Kia was producing motorcycles soon after. By 1962, the automotive industry was booming and the already popular company decided to try its hand at commercial buses and trucks. By ’74 they had opened the Sohari plant and embarked on the journey of the passenger car and the rest, as they say, is history…

But let’s actually take a look at the history. The first item off the press was called the Brisa and wasn’t followed until 6 years later by the production of the one ton diesel Bongo. The car that really set the wheels in motion for Kia was the Pride in 1986, a collaboration with Ford and Mazda. By 1991 this car had edged it’s way into sales in Portland, Oregon and began it’s spread across the states under the name of Kia Motors America, gaining success with the Sportage and Sephia. The Elan also marked the launch of the company’s first ever sports car. With over 150 dealerships in more than 35 states, Kia would sell its one hundred thousandth US vehicle by 1997.

Coming off the high of their success in America, Kia would file bankruptcy in the same year thanks to the financial meltdown in Asia. Kia, now merged with Hyundia, would grapple over rights with Ford Motor Company, eventually coming out the successor. Within two years they would make their way to the 5th largest automobile importer and would make annual sales of over 130,000 units. Shortly after, the Sedona, Optima and Sorento are launched and production reaches 10 million units in America.
