Kia Motors Slovakia has an annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles. With more than 2,700 employees and its state-of-the-art robotics, the plant is nearing its production capacity in less than three years since its opening. The plant currently produces the cee'd family line-up of vehicles and the Kia Sportage for the European market. The cee'd family is the only product within the Kia product line-up that was designed and built specifically for Europe. The decision made by Kia Motors Corporation to build its first-ever European facility was based on continued and projected strong sales and market share growth in Europe. Kia selected the Zilina region because of its transportation infrastructure, high-quality workforce, strategic proximity to European market and the automotive parts supply chain available in the region.
