Staying sustainable
(Comments: 0 / Facebook Comments: )

People are noticing how much effort Kia puts into staying green and sustainable. Recently, Kia, along with its sister company Hyundai, was named the greenest automaker in the U.S. in an annual ranking of the eight top-selling automakers made by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), an independent nonprofit organization. The rankings are based on carbon and smog-forming emissions from each automaker’s vehicles, and we came out on top because of the green technologies incorporated in our vehicles that reduce environmental impact. This recognition follows Kia’s entry onto Interbrand’s list of “50 Best Global Green Brands 2013” in 37th place.

If 30 million Kia Optimas (also known as the K5) were lined up bumper-to-bumper it would span some 40,000 kilometers, equivalent to 3.6 times the circumference of the earth.
