With only a hand full of cars in the Indian market, Kia has grown exponentially in the past few years and the SUVs – Sonet and Seltos are enjoying massive popularity in the SUV segment. The company even made a total sale of 19,100 units in the month of March 2021 and achieved a massive YoY growth of 122%, and MoM growth of 14.36%. However, the company did lose a tiny amount on the market share which dropped from 6.1% in March 2020 to 6.0% in March 2021. But with all these increasing sale numbers comes the responsibility to fulfil the demand of each customer and that where the term waiting period arrives. So, today we bring you the detailed list of the waiting period of Kia cars for April 2021.
