Kia is celebrating one of its first milestones in Europe. The South-Korean manufacturer managed to reach one million cee`d units produced in its European factory since 2006. This means nine years and over 100.000 units produced very year.
The 1,000,000th cee’d to roll off Kia’s European production line was a high powered Kia cee’d GT five-door hatchback in ‘Fusion White’. The car and its 201hp 1.6-litre T-GDI (turbo gasoline direct injection) engine were both produced in Slovakia. The car is destined for a buyer in the Netherlands.
Manufactured exclusively for the European market, at Kia’s production facility in Zilina, Slovakia, the cee’d accounts for over 21 percent of Kia’s total European sales. More than 75,960 were sold in 2014, making the Kia cee’d the brand’s second best-selling model in Europe after the highly-acclaimed Sportage compact SUV, which is also produced in Zilina.
Later this year, Kia will launch the GT Line model to the range, which blends the style and sportiness of the cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT with the versatility of the conventional cee’d model line-up. The new GT Line specification will be available for all three members of the Kia model family (five- and three-door hatchbacks and Sportswagon estate).
In the UK, Kia sold 13,189 cee’ds in 2014 and is the third best-selling vehicle, behind the ever popular Sportage and Picanto.
In addition, the new cee’d GT Line signifies the arrival of Kia’s all-new downsized 1.0-litre T-GDI (turbo gasoline direct injection) engine and new seven-speed double-clutch transmission in Europe.
