Manny Pacquiao set to coach Kia’s PBA team
(Comments: 0 / Facebook Comments: )

The first-and-only eight division boxing world champion, Congressman Manny Pacquiao, has joined Team Kia and adds yet another title to his resume: Head Coach of Kia’s PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) team.

Pacquiao’s love for basketball is no secret, and he takes his love for it to another level, adding professional basketball team head coach to his growing list of accomplishments. Team Kia, a recent addition to the PBA league of ten men’s professional basketball teams, will suit up for the PBA’s 40th season this October. Though Pacquiao still has a boxing match coming up in November, he did not want to pass up on this opportunity to pursue another one of his passions.

Football story: How football inspires Trinidad and Tobago
(Comments: 0 / Facebook Comments: )

Earlier this year, as a lead-up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, World Cup official sponsor Kia and host FIFA teamed up for the “Power of Football” contest which kicked off today with the match between host country Brazil and Croatia. Our mission was simple: to find a story that demonstrated how football could inspire a local community. And what we found was more than just a touching football story in time for the 2014 World Cup, but a true example of inspiration that brought about a surprising change to a small town located on an island country off the coast of South America.

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.

(Comments: 0 / Facebook Comments: )

Kia announced that its cumulative global sales have exceeded 30 million vehicles since Kia produced Korea‘s first three-wheeled vans, the K-360, 52 years ago in 1962. Have a hard time wrapping your head around what 30 million cars looks like? 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.

The beautiful country of South Korea is where Kia’s headquarters lie, and as one of the country’s auto manufacturers, we’re always looking for a chance to showcase the beauty that lies within South Korea.

Fuel for the future—Green Light Project
(Comments: 0 / Facebook Comments: )

When it comes to driving, we all know that green means “go”. Unfortunately for some, in life, the light is red—not because of their own inabilities, but because of the surrounding environment. In an effort to give more people the ability to “go”, Kia has invested in the ‘Green Light Project,’ an ongoing social outreach project first started in 2012 that helps communities in Africa by providing facilities and support for sustained growth.
