The company has surpassed figure of 50,000 activated connected cars on road which includes Seltos and Carnival models, Kia Motors India said in a statement.
The automaker is the only manufacturer to secure this feat within just over 10 months of its first product introduction in the country, it added.

“Now, with the updated UVO connect features in the new Seltos and upcoming Sonet, Kia has made driving even more fun, safe, convenient and comfortable,” Shim noted.
UVO Connect integrates smartphone, car and car’s infotainment system into a single unit to provide a secure and convenient experience.
