Kia plans to produce a compact sedan and compact SUV for the Indian market. The Kia factory site will also have several suppliers setting up shop in the vicinity of the plant, though several of Hyundai's suppliers may also supply to the plant.

The Indian auto market is growing at a rapid pace and over 3.3 million new cars were sold in 2016. Forecasts suggest the country will become the third-largest vehicle market globally by the end of 2020.
