Looks like the gain in overall sales is primarily due to the Telluride (96%).

I saw a SX Telluride at the gym today. Amber DRLs. Black wheels. Kind of a dark bluish gray. Wow. What a gorgeous SUV. The front row windows were darkened, which I'm guessing is after market. They are illegal in Washington State, but tons of cars have them. Can't see the driver from the side.

The 2020 Souls sales surprised me with the low numbers from the previous year. Hmmm.....why?

Seltos sales?
I should also add that the Coronavirus could have a serious effect on Kia models coming out of South Korea, as factories have had to close for some time and also many components are coming from China that could effect the supply line.

"For the auto industry, the crisis has left cars gathering dust on dealer lots, dealerships shuttered, auction prices slipping and tens of thousands of workers laid off or furloughed. April U.S. sales plummeted 54% for Toyota Motor Corp., 47% for Subaru Corp. and 39% for Hyundai Motor Co."

update, I think this is for March not April as I originally thought (this website I get it off is so confusing you don't know what month you are looking at, as they just say "Last month" which could be two months ago), as it does not match a report today for April from Mazda Canada which was down 81.1% selling 1,191.

Change for all combined Canadian Brands in April 2020, -55%
The future is far from rosey. Where will all these cars go?
Will there ever be a 2021 Soul?
