Asia Motors Co. Ltd., founded in 1965, was a South Korean motor vehicle manufacturer of large and medium duty trucks, special military vehicles, lightweight cars, civilian jeeps (a small jeep look-alike called the Rocsta and later the Asia Retona), motor vehicle components, to include engines, and buses and mini-buses. Kia owned 28.28% of issued stock. It was completely merged with Kia (itself by then owned by Hyundai) in 1999 and Asia Motors currently has no automobile production.

The Australian Asia Motors distributors, now an independent company called Asia Motors Australia, continues to use the Asia Motors name but now sources its products elsewhere.


The Rocsta's replacement, the Retona, was sold under the Kia badge.
