The three millionth car to roll off the production line is a Kia cee’d. The car is a fusion white five-door hatchback in ‘GT-Line’ specification, built for a customer in Iceland. It is fitted with a 1.0-litre T-GDi (Turbo Gasoline-Direct injection) engine.
In 2017, Kia Motors Slovakia manufactured 335,600 vehicles and 539,987 engines, exporting to more than 80 countries around the world. The most popular engine last year was the 1.7-litre CRDi (Common-Rail Direct injection) diesel engine.
Žilina is home to the production of three models in Kia’s European line-up – the popular Kia cee’d model family (incorporating cee’d five-door hatchback, Sportswagon and pro_cee’d), the best-selling Kia Sportage and the Kia Venga compact MPV. Since May 2013, Kia Motors Slovakia has also manufactured the brand’s first-ever performance models for Europe, the high-powered cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT. Together, Kia’s range of European-manufactured models account for nearly 50 per cent of the company’s total European sales.
Kia’s European production base has built a reputation for producing high quality vehicles, and plays an important role in helping the brand deliver its industry-leading seven-year/100,000 mile warranty. The unique warranty is applied as standard to every Kia car sold in Europe.
