Where is Kia Made?

Many Rogers and Anoka drivers have turned to Kia vehicles due to their stylish interior and exterior, advanced tech and safety features, and dependable performance. But some also wonder, where is Kia made or where is Kia from? Well, allow the experts at Cornerstone Kia walk you through where Kia comes from and how it has expanded to become one of the most popular automotive brands in the world!

What Country is Kia From?

The Kia company was started in South Korea and has remained headquartered in Seoul since 1973 when it opened its first integrated automotive assembly plant. While they originally began producing vehicles for the Korean market, they quickly began supplying automobiles to other countries, and currently have 14 manufacturing facilities in eight countries around the world.

Where are Kia Vehicles Made Now?

Once Kia models started catching on in surrounding Asian markets, the brand was eventually introduced to the European market in 1991 and was later available in the North American market by 1994. Kia remains headquartered in Seoul while it has continued to open plants, facilities, and design centers in the United States, Germany, Japan, Eastern Europe, India, Mexico, China, and Vietnam.
