Officially, the history of the company KIA starts with the formation of the enterprise – in 1944. In the early days of his company activities engaged in the production of components for bicycles and called Kyungsung Precision Industry. Only in 1952, the company independently produced Korea’s first bicycle and received its present name KIA Industrial Company. In 1961 appeared the first motorcycle from the KIA (C-100 model), the following product has become a three-wheeled truck K 369, manufactured for over 12 years. 2018-2019 Kia car production only started to engage in the mid 70-ies of the 20th century. Firstborn was the four-wheel truck Titan.
In 1971, 2018-2019 Kia started to cooperate with the Japanese Mazda, and in 1972 to produce cars under license. In 1974, there was Brisa model (1300 to Mazda platform). At the end of the 70s of the last century KIA car models have diesel engines, thus manufactured expanded line (license from Peugeout and FIAT).
The crisis in 1980 was reflected in the company’s history KIA, the company was forced to officially negotiate with Mazda cooperation, and models of the Japanese manufacturer clones fell like a horn of plenty: Pride, Rhino, Trade, Besta (minibus). KIA car sales grew unceasingly, and the plant was opened in 1990 in the US, and the company became known as the new name – KIA Motors Corporation.
Because of flaws in the management of the 1998 history of the company KIA continues deep crisis, the firm moved to the property of Hyundai. Due to the absorption of KIA Hёnde remained on the global automotive arena, and in 1999 became a full-fledged part of the automaker Hyundai KIA Automotive Group.
