Kia today has 40,000 full-time employees worldwide and annual revenues of over US$14.6 billion and is now a subsidiary of the Hyundai-Kia Automotive Group (33.88% owned by the Hyundai Motor Company)

From its very humble beginnings as a manufacturer of bicycle parts by hand on the outskirts of Seoul, Korea, Kia Motors has emerged as the driving force behind the Korean motor vehicle for the last six decades, laying claim to the production of the country’s first automobile as well as Korea’s first automobile export.

The word “Kia” is derived from the Chinese characters Ki, meaning to “arise or come up out of” and a, referring to Asia. So when put together, Kia means to “arise or come up out of Asia”

Today, Kia has truly risen as a major global player and boasts an ever-expanding product line-up that is sold through a network of distributors and dealers covering around 180 countries around the world. Around 49,000 Kia employees spanning the globe form an expansive human network that aspires for excellence on behalf of our valued customers.
