Mumbai, June 3rd, 2024: Carens, Kia India’s flagship vehicle, has achieved a remarkable milestone by crossing 1.5 lakh domestic sales since its launch in February 2022. The vehicle has revolutionised the family mover segment with its sleek design and cutting-edge tech features, becoming a preferred mobility choice for new-age customers with extended families. Impressively, 50% of the consumers prefer the top and mid trims of this popular family mover, which has features like Sunroof, Multi Drive Modes, Ventilated Seats and Kia Connect to name a few.
