    Kia has sold over 8 million vehicles in the U.S. over nearly three decades since its entry into the local market.

    The carmaker said on Sunday it sold some 55,800 cars last month to reach the milestone with cumulative sales of 8.03 million cars.

    Kia, which set up its U.S. subsidiary in October 1992, was not much of a player until it opened its local plant in Georgia in 2010, when cumulative sales hit the 3-million mark. The figure gradually increased to 5 million in 2014, 6 million in 2015 and 7 million in 2017.

    Its most popular model in the U.S. is the midsize Sorento SUV, which has sold over 1.31 million units there, followed by the compact Soul SUV (1.19 million) and the midsize K5 sedan (1.06 million).
