Kia Motors (Lanka) Limited recently relaunched its website with an array of new navigational features, including scrolling videos, captivating images, and distinctive tiles, all designed to embody the brand’s global ethos of ‘movement that inspires.’
Fittingly, Jayanthi Kuru-Utumpala, the first Sri Lankan to summit Mount Everest and a proud Kia customer who exemplifies performance excellence and an inspiring mobility of her own, was invited to launch the rebranded Kia website which was developed in accordance with the latest global brand guidelines of Kia.
Reflecting Kia’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility, the new website introduces the brand’s new electric vehicle models, the Kia EV6, Kia Niro EV and Kia Soul EV, on its homepage. Although vehicle imports are still restricted, these electric vehicles are available on order for foreign workers who have received permits for remitting foreign currency to Sri Lanka.
Commenting on the rebranding and launch of the website, Kia Motors (Lanka) Managing Director Mr Andrew Perera said: “Our operations are driven by the same global aspirations and philosophy as Kia. As designers of movement, Kia is committed to creating mobility solutions that inspire and innovate. The new website not only reflects this commitment, but also improves user experience and navigation, giving visitors a true sense of the Kia brand when they browse.”
In order to enhance user experience, the website has been equipped with a range of unique features. These include seamless integration with the Kia Lanka mobile application for service requests, convenient access to Kia after-sales services, and a handy 360° Visualizer feature that enables site visitors to view a vehicle from every angle. Additionally, the website allows users to browse and explore Certified Pre-Owned automobiles available with Kia Lanka, stay up to date with the brand’s latest developments in the country and globally, and locate a Kia branch or dealer closest to them effortlessly.
Designed and developed by 3CS, the website is fully responsive and works seamlessly with all mobile platforms and devices.
