This post really isn’t about the 2004 Kia Sorento I found on eBay. If it was, you might think I lost my pop rocks. It’s actually about a news clip I read yesterday evening. Kia Motors America sold 39,291 units in January. That’s more than they sold all year in 1996 when I was there. I remember total sales in 1996 to be 36,000 and some change. Incredible what Kia has done in the states. They are selling more in the worse sales month historically than they did all year, 16 years ago. Remember how you laughed and laughed at the Kia Sephia when it came to your town? That’s all changed.
But let’s hope for our sake that Clint Eastwood did a number for Imported from Detroit in the Superbowl spot because despite Kia having a plant in the states, profits still fly the coup.
