  • it sold 5,963 units of the Sonet subcompact SUV in the same month.

Kia India recorded a year-on-year (Y0Y) sales growth of 106 per cent in June 2021 selling 15,015 units. The Korean brand sold 8,549, 5,963 and 503 units of the Kia Seltos, Sonet and Carnival respectively. The robust uptick is primarily attributed to sales picking up owing to the pent up demand after the second wave of COVID crisis in the month of May and also because sales in June last year were more subdued comparatively leading to a low base, as market was still dwindling from the aftershock of the nationwide lockdown. But now the company is recovering faster as its month-on-month (MoM) went up by 36 per cent indicating improved customer sentiment after an ease in the lockdown curbs across the country.
