Kia Country of Charleston Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Kia Country of Charleston celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Located on Savannah Highway in West Ashley, Kia Country will mark the milestone with customer promotions, contests, and a spring anniversary event. Kia Country’s many accomplishments include being named Dealer Rater’s South Carolina Dealer of the Year, 7 out of the last 8 years and designation as a Kia Dealer of Excellence (KDEP), reserved for top 20% of Kia dealerships nationwide. Kia Country boasts a legion of loyal customers, a cadre of tenured employees and impressive growth.

Since its inception, Kia Country has maintained a commitment to give back to the Charleston community. Kia Country places a high value on its role as a responsible citizen and has continually increased efforts to positively impact the community. A staunch advocate for Veterans, preventing animal cruelty and ending hunger, Kia Country supports Warrior Surf Foundation, Charleston Animal Society, Katie’s Krops, Lowcountry Food Bank, MUSC, and the Coastal Community Foundation. In addition, Kia Country makes annual contributions to Elks Charities, recreational youth sports programs and safe teen driving.

To kick off the celebration, Kia Country is thanking customers and recognizing some neighbors in the West Ashley business community. The first twenty customers who purchase a Kia in January will receive a gift card for dinner at one of the dealership’s favorite restaurants. Throughout the year, events and promotions can be found on the dealership’s website and social media channels.

Kia Country is a Lee Motor Group dealership. Since 1953, a privately-owned business based in Wilson, NC has delivered automotive excellence. Lee dealerships include Lee Ford Lincoln, Lee Nissan, Lee Hyundai of Fayetteville, Kia Country of Savannah, Lee Kia of Greenville, Lee Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Wilson, and opening in 2023 Kia Country of Hilton Head.

“It doesn’t seem like 20 years; it seems like yesterday. In the early years, we got attention with “buy one get one at no charge” and gave a car to the customer who hung on the longest (a week). Today, the Kia brand has evolved from discount throwaway vehicles to a challenger brand that now leads the industry in many areas including design, technology, and marketing. We are proud to be representing such a forward-looking manufacturer in the greatest city in the United States,” said General Manager, Steve Appelbaum.
