Kia was founded in 1944 and originally manufactured bicycle parts and steel tubing. It started to build bicycles in 1951. Six years later, the company began building motorcycles. Kia started manufacturing trucks in 1962 and cars in 1974. Today Kia automobiles are seen all over the Scottsdale roadways.
Starting in 1986, Kia rejoined the car industry. This was made possible through a partnership with Ford. The company also produced a number of Mazda derived vehicles for export and domestic sale. These models included the Kia Avella that is sold in Australia and North America as the Ford Aspire and Ford Festiva and the Kia Pride that is entirely based on the Mazda 121.
In 1992, the company was incorporated in America. The company’s first vehicles were sold from four dealerships based mainly in Portland, OR. Since then, the company has steadily expanded. Since more Kia’s are traveling the Scottsdale streets and highways we continuously see the number or Kia’s needing auto body repairs in Scottsdale rise.
