Volvo Cars reports global sales growth of 5.7 per cent in February



Strong demand for the new 90 series cars continued to be an important factor in Volvo’s positive sales performance, while the soon-to-be-replaced XC60 remains the best-selling model overall. An all new XC60 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

 
The Asia Pacific region reported sales growth of 19.4 per cent to 8,724 cars, helped by a strong performance in China, Volvo’s largest market. Sales in China rose by 20.8 per cent to 5,878 cars, with strong demand for the locally-produced XC60 and S60L models as well as the XC90 and S90.
 
Sales in the EMEA region increased by 5.1 per cent, amounting to 21,892 cars sold. Key markets such as Sweden, the United Kingdom and Italy underpinned the solid performance, with strong demand for the new V90 as well as Europe’s most popular premium mid-size SUV, the XC60. In Sweden, the new S90/V90 brought Volvo back to its traditional spot atop the list of best-selling models.
 
The Americas region reported sales of 5,625 cars, of which 4,651 in the United States. The most popular model in the region is the XC60, followed closely by the XC90.
