KIA succeeded against competition from various leading global automakers and will provide a variety of Rio, Cerato and Sorento vehicles, including maintenance services, to the UN and UN Entities for the next three years.

“It is a significant achievement for KIA to be selected as the vehicle supplier for the UN. It is a testament to the excellent quality of our vehicles and their competitiveness in the global automobile market,” commented KIA.

“The contract was awarded to KIA Motors with the aim of consolidating the vehicle requirements of the UN Entities to the extent possible, to take advantage of economies of scale, better quality, and better after-sale support package,” said the UN. “It is important for the UN and the UN Entities to ensure that vehicles are of good quality with comprehensive after-sale support package. We look forward to having a fruitful engagement with KIA.”

This is the second time that KIA will be providing vehicles to the UN, having provided 420 minibuses (including Hyundai models) to the UN from 2010 to 2015, following a bid process held by the UN/DP.

Hyundai Motor, KIA’s sister company, will also be providing its vehicles to UN. The contract between KIA (including Hyundai) and the UN equates to approximately US$7 million over the next three years, with the possibility of a two-year extension. Hyundai Mobis, part of Hyundai Motor Group, will also be providing automotive parts to the UN. is an award-winning Digital Media, Marketing, and Advertising Company est. 2015, is a Member of the Independent Media Association of South Africa (IMASA), and Brand South Africa's Play Your Part Ambassadors, with a global reach of over 10 million
