OREANDA-NEWS. Government measures to stimulate demand help to ensure about a third of the sales of new KIA cars in Russia. The agency "AUTOSTAT" was informed in the press service of KIA Motors Rus by noting that, for example, more than 80% of KIA car sales on credit at the end of eight months of 2016 fell on the state program of preferential car loan. The leaders by sales volume were the models KIA Rio, KIA cee'd and new KIA Sportage.

"We welcome any initiative of the Government to support the automotive industry and we look forward to their continuation in a crisis, because the problem of KIA Motors Rus – is to keep its leading position in terms of sales among foreign brands and to increase the market share in Russia (currently it is 10.4% )", - added in the KIA Motors Rus.
