They’re the second largest automotive manufacturer in South Korea, but Kia Motors Corporation actually began as a manufacturer of steel tubing and bicycle parts in the 1940s. Established in 1944 in South Korea as Kyungsung Precision Industry, the company has since named themselves “Kia,” which stands for “out of Asia.” Unfortunately, for a short period of time, they were hindered by the Korean War, and were destined for a slow start. But by the 1950s, Kia expanded their business to a brand of bicycles and motor scooters in a struggling Korean industrial world. From there, Kia would take off to mark an image in the automotive world.
Kia began manufacturing domestic cars and trucks in 1974. As they were given time to develop and improve their vehicles, Kia Motors America was incorporated in 1992 with the purpose of entering the U.S. market with affordable compact sedans to widen their presence in the automotive world. By the late ‘90s, however, Kia had spread thin from growing exponentially in a short period of time, and filed bankruptcy in 1998. With several bids submitted for the company, Hyundai purchased a share in the group which revived life into the corporation. Today, Kia has substantially enhanced its reputation and inventory by offering vehicles such as minivans, sedans, SUVs, and subcompact cars and ensuring their customers a vehicle with build quality, performance, and reliability.
