Kia motors have announced that they are making an entry into the Indian market and have signed an MOU to build a manufacturing plant at Anatapur near Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh.

The South Korean automaker has said that it will invest around Billon dollars for the building of the plant and will commence work on the same from fourth quarter of 2017.
