Kia Motors makes its 100,000th car in Slovakia

Kia Motors Slovakia made its 100,000th car last Friday at its factory near Žilina.

The Korean carmaker launched its Slovak plant in December 2006.

The milestone car was a Cee'd_SW station wagon, the newest Kia model.

The 100,000th Cee’d is to roll off the plant production line on October 3, the company announced.

Kia Motors Europe vice-president Jean-Charles Lievens said that thanks to highly qualified employees, more than 2,500 of whom now work in two-shift production, the company is now producing three models: a five-door version and a station wagon version of the Kia Cee'd, and the Sportage SUV.

"In the second half of October, the production of the fourth Cee'd model will start, which will be a sporty three-door version of the five-door Cee'd model," Lievens added.
