With a record number of pre-launch bookings, Kia has now officially started delivering its first-ever offering in the Indian market to buyers across the country. The Kia Seltos has been launched with prices ranging from Rs 9.69 lakh to 15.99 lakh (introductory, ex-showroom India).
At the launch event, Kia announced that it has received over 32,000 bookings for the Seltos from both showroom walk-ins and online channel. So far, Kia has produced more than 5,000 units of the Seltos by running single shifts at its Anantapur facility. To meet the increased demand, Kia will now start a second shift at the plant.
Kia has officially confirmed that it will not stop accepting bookings for the Seltos given the high demand. Incidentally, MG recently suspended bookings for the Hector and is currently not accepting any new reservations. The carmaker cited high demand for the SUV as the reason behind the move. MG has received more than 21,000 bookings for the Hector so far.
The Kia Seltos is available in two trims with 16 options in total for now. The Seltos is available with two petrol and one diesel engine option along with four transmission options. Below are the detailed prices of various variants of the Kia Seltos. Check out the launch news for more details.
