The History of Kia

Kia is the 2nd biggest car manufacturer in South Korea to Hyundai. Hyundai, funnily enough, owns 32.8% of Kia. Kia was established in 1944.

They began by making bike parts and tubing. Then in 1951, they made complete bikes and even motorcycles in 1957, showing a solid taste for innovation. 

They began manufacturing trucks in 1962 and finally cars in 1974. Kia Brisa was the first car produced by Kia. 

Kia had to stop manufacturing cars in 1981 because the South Korean government decided the auto industry was too competitive and wanted Kia to make light trucks instead. 

This order stayed in place until 1986 Kia began producing the Kia Pride. 

Kia Motors America was founded in 1992 when the company began selling vehicles in the US. 

The ’90s were not great for Kia, which led to them filing for bankruptcy in 1997. In 1998, Hyundai acquired 51% of Kia, giving them majority ownership and beating off competition from Ford, another interested party. Hyundai now owns over a third of Kia. 

Kia then began to focus on the EU market and has gone from strength to straight. Some top-rated models today include the Rio, Picanto and Sportage. They have also invested heavily in hybrid vehicles, releasing several hybrid models. Kia is currently the 7th top-selling car manufacturer in Ireland.
