Kia India announces relaunch with new company logo, slogan ‘Movement that inspires’
New Delhi: Kia India has announced the relaunch of its brand in India with a focus on illuminating its transition from an automaker to a provider of advanced and eco-friendly mobility solutions.
India is the first country outside South Korea – the home of Kia – where the brand relaunch is celebrated.
Kia India, which is wholly owned by Kia Corporation, introduces the company’s refashioned logo and brand slogan, “Movement that inspires”.
The versatile compact SUV Seltos and the subcompact crossover SUV Sonet, both of which are updated for the Indian market under the newly stylized logo, will be unveiled to the market in the first week of May, 2021.
During the brand showcase, Kookhyun Shim, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Kia India unveiled the refreshed Seltos with the new Kia logo.
Signalling the bold transition, the company name has changed from Kia Motors India to Kia India, dropping “Motors,” which symbolizes Kia becoming an enterprise that invests in and produces more than just vehicles to offer a long-range of sustainable mobility solutions.
“In the Indian context, the brand slogan “Movement that inspires” represents Kia’s ambitious plans for leading the future mobility revolution in the country with premium products equipped with unique design and segment-first features, advanced digitized services complemented by one of the largest networks by any new entrant brand in the country. In line with the change, Kia India also intends to attain full capacity utilization of its state-of-art manufacturing facility in Anantapur in a move to facilitate faster production and delivery of its vehicles.”
Hardeep Singh Brar, Vice President & Head of Sales and Marketing, Kia India, said, “Kia is a futuristic brand and always on the move to be as close as possible to our consumers. We feel that regular product interventions and increasing brand accessibility are some of the key areas, which will help us in meeting this objective. Hence, we are taking a conscious decision to regularly refresh our existing product portfolio, launch new products at regular intervals and foray into newer markets to provide an aspirational experience to consumers who are keen on becoming proud Kia owners.”
