      Volvo Cars reports 13.9 per cent global sales growth in October

      Nov 05, 2019 ID: 260264

      The company sold 60,959 cars during the month, as China, Europe and the US all reported a growth in sales compared with the same period last year.

      The double digit volume growth in October was driven by a continued strong demand for Volvo Car’s award-winning SUV range led by the XC60, and followed by the XC40 and XC90. Volvo Car’s latest models, the V60 estate and the US-built S60 sedan, also contributed to the strong performance.

      In the January to October period, Volvo Cars sold a total 568,663 cars, up 8.1 per cent, compared with the same period last year.

      Sales in China during the month reached 14,039 cars, up 26.7 per cent, compared with the same period last year. The strong sales growth in the region was led by the locally produced XC60 and the S90. In the first ten months of the year, a total of 123,551 cars were sold in China, up 15.2 per cent, compared with the same period last year.

      US sales stood at 8,807 cars in October, up 20.2 per cent, compared with the same period last year. The XC90 was the top selling model in the region during the month, followed by the XC60 and the locally produced S60 sedan. In the January to October period, Volvo Cars sold a total of 86,239 cars, up 6.1 per cent, compared with the same period last year.

      European sales reached 29,510 cars in the month, up 9.7 per cent, compared with the same period last year. The XC40 was the highest selling model in the region during the month, followed by the XC60 and the new V60 estate.

      Pretty impressive. Volvo up +26.7% in China, while all Chinese car sales down -5.8%!

      Not so bad for the US market either. Volvo sales up +20.2%, while all car sales down -.7%. No other car company's sales were up that high in the US. Audi was close with a +19.4% increase.
