Korean carmaker Kia has started mass production of the second generation of its cee'd Sportswagon model at its plant in Teplička nad Váhom. The model should be one of Kia’s key products and support production growth this year. Its previous version made up more than a fifth of total production at Kia’s Slovak facility.
"Kia Motors Slovakia has produced more than 256,000 units of the first-generation cee'd model since 2007, which were exported to 51 countries. Production of the station wagon version makes up more than 22 percent of total production," spokesman Dušan Dvořák told the Pravda daily.
Kia Motors Slovakia is currently preparing to manufacture another new model. During the two-week summer shutdown it upgraded production lines to build a new three-door model, the pro cee'd, and plans to begin mass production next year.
