7 KIA New Cars Model in Pakistan [2022 Guides]

Introduction

Korean International Automotive (KIA) is a well-renowned automobile brand that is witnessing a gradual increase in its brand value since 2012. The well-reputed auto-manufacturer finds its roots in South Korea (as the name suggests) and is considered as a twin-cousin of Hyundai.

History of KIA

KIA brand shares an unsteady history with Pakistan. In the mid-1990s the company entered the Pakistani automobile market by launching the KIA-Pride hatchback and a 1-ton Pickup KIA Ceres. However, the brand was not satisfied with their then local partners i.e. Naya Daur Motors.

Therefore, in the late 1990s, Deewan Farooque Motors Limited (DFML) took over and started selling KIA cars in Pakistan. Unfortunately, they went bankrupt and KIA finally stopped operating in Pakistan.

To attract automakers from around the world, the Pakistani government introduced Auto-Policy 2016-2021. The idea of the policy was to allow automobile companies to import localized parts at only 25% duty.

The Yunus Brothers Group (YBG) – one of the largest conglomerates in Pakistan – took full advantage of this opportunity and built a partnership with KIA. This in return, resulted in KIA Lucky Motors in 2017.

In this blog, we will discuss some new and upcoming KIA cars in Pakistan.
