About Kia UK Limited
Kia was founded in Korea in 1944, and is Korea’s oldest automobile manufacturer.

In April 2021, Kia UK earned its highest market share to date of 4.92 per cent.
The company offers a wide range of multi award-winning vehicles, from city cars such as the Picanto and Rio to the seven-seat Sorento SUV, while the Sportage is the brand’s most popular model.
Kia has one of the most diverse powertrain offerings available today, with the 19-strong model range including full-electric, plug-in hybrid, hybrid, mild hybrid, petrol and diesel options.
By transforming from Kia Motors (UK) Limited to Kia UK Limited in May 2021, the company’s new corporate name underlines its commitment to the long-term ‘Plan S’ business strategy that was unveiled in January 2020 and aims to establish Kia’s leadership position in the future sustainable mobility space.
This includes next-generation EVs and BEVs, such as the forthcoming EV6, mobility solutions and services and advanced purpose-built vehicles. Alongside these efforts, Kia will simultaneously promote more sustainable production through the use of clean energy and recyclable materials.
Kia UK Limited employs more than 160 people at its UK headquarters, located at Walton-On-Thames, Surrey, where it manages the business and the network of 191 UK-based dealerships and 11 Authorised Repairers.
