Kia Overview

KIA has a long history in the Pakistani automobile market. This South Korean company first came to the country in mid 1990s (1994/1995) by collaborating with Naya Daur Motors. With its debut, the company launched Kia Pride (hatchback) and Kia Ceres (1-ton pickup). That partnership didn’t go well and the company had to stop its operations in Pakistan.

Soon after (in 1998), KIA returned to the Pakistani market by partnering with Dewan Farooque Motor Company Limited. At that time, its first local assembly plant was also set up. KIA Pride was re-launched but in sedan form known as KIA Classic. Due to the bankruptcy of Dewan Farooque Motor Company Limited, KIA had to stop its operations in Pakistan again.

The latest re-entry of KIA in Pakistan is done by partnering with the Lucky Cement of the Yunus Brothers Group. The company introduced the third generation Grand Carnival and a pickup truck Frontier K2700 in 2018. Just 1 year after (2019), it launched the first locally assembled Crossover SUV named KIA Sportage (4th gen) in Pakistan and 2nd generation KIA Picanto (hatchback). In 2021, KIA Lucky Motors brought another mid-size Crossover SUV KIA Sorento (3rd gen), and a subcompact crossover SUV KIA Stonic to Pakistan.
