While many other carmakers struggled to increase their sales in the month of March, due to inclement weather, Kia seemed to remain unaffected by Mother Nature’s mood swings. According to the March Kia sales report, the carmaker sold 54,777 vehicles, boasting an 11.5 percent increase compared to March 2013. Much of the credit for this increase in total sales goes to the Kia Optima and Soul, both of which had record breaking sales months, helping make March the second-best March total in company history.
