SEOUL, July 27 South Korean carmaker Kia Motors
plans to roll out a new version of its Soul compact
car next year, an executive said during an earnings conference
call on Friday, without elaborating on which countries it would
be sold in.
Soul is Kia's second-best selling model in the United States
in the first half of this year.
The executive also said Kia, an affiliate of Hyundai Motor
, plans to launch the new model of its top-selling
compact car Forte in South Korea in September and in overseas
markets starting late this year, and is targeting global sales
of more than 450,000 next year.
