Diesel Vehicle Emission Statement

25.09.15 – Formal Statement from Kia

Today we have received an official communication from Kia Motors Corporation in Korea regarding the issue of emission testing that has arisen in the US involving the VW group.

KMC has today confirmed that none of our vehicles, past or present, are fitted with any type of software intended to manipulate regulatory emission test results, and that we abide by the testing regulations and methods of each region where we sell cars (including in Europe).

I am sending you this information in confidence to assure you of our certainty that our brand will not be tainted by this issue.

You are free to use this information to reassure any existing or prospective customers.
