SEOUL, Feb. 5 (Yonhap) -- Kia Motors Corp., South Korea's second-largest carmaker by sales, said Wednesday it will launch its entry-level sport utility vehicle Sonet in India later this year.

Kia unveiled the Sonet concept at the New Delhi Auto Expo, which runs Feb. 5-12. On Wednesday, it launched the localized Carnival multipurpose vehicle in the Indian market, the company said in a statement.

The maker of the K5 sedan and the Sorento SUV aims to sell 300,000 vehicles in India in 2022. This year, it has a target of 124,000 unit sales in the world's second-most populous country, sharply up from its sales of 45,000 vehicles last year, it said.

In August last year, Kia began to churn out a localized Seltos entry-level SUV at its Indian plant for the market there.

Kia has eight domestic plants and seven overseas ones -- three in China and one each in the U.S., Slovakia, Mexico and India. Their overall capacity is 3.84 million units.
