Volvo’s SUV range continues to be a driving force for sales

Volvo’s global sales grew at a steady pace in April, up 7.4 per cent compared with the same period last year. Total sales during the month reached 56,535 cars, with all the regions of China, the US and Europe reporting a growth in volumes compared with the same month last year.

Sales in the January-April period stood at 217,855 cars, up 8.9 per cent compared with the same period last year. The growth was led by continued strong demand for the SUV range, led by the XC60 and followed by the XC40 and XC90. Volvo’s latest models, the V60 estate and the US-built S60 sedan, also contributed to the increased volumes.

China reported a strong sales growth of 16.8 per cent in April compared with the same period last year. Total sales in the region reached 12,192 cars during the month. The growth was on the back of high demand for the locally assembled XC60 and S90 models. Meanwhile, European sales in April grew 6.1 per cent to 27,963 cars, on the back of strong demand for the XC40, followed by the XC60 and the new V60 estate. 

Rather disappointingly, US sales reached 8,367 cars for the month of April, up by just 0.4 per cent compared with the same period last year. The XC90 was the highest-selling car in the region, followed by the XC60. Volvo India’s sales, too, comprises mostly of the SUVs including the XC40 and the XC60 – models that make up most of the sales pie in several markets.
