      I wonder how they did world wide? I imagine that they sell more in the United States than any other individual country but I'm pretty sure they sell a lot more in Europe as a whole.

      Europe as a whole is the top market, China second, US the third. Global sales number will be published usually sometime in the first week every month.

      There is something very wrong with this chart. I suspect that, at the very least, the labels for S60 and S60 II and for V60 and V60 II were reversed. Sigh. Given that Rockleigh can't seem to get anything straight, it is amazing that Volvo is selling so well in the US. Clearly on its own merits and not on VCUSA's bumbling management.

      The most amazing number is 4,609 XC90 sales. I went and looked at the Good Car Bad Car website, and the XC90 has never had that monthly sales number in it's history, either 1st gen or 2nd gen.

      Excellent results in the US & Worldwide 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

      I expect the growth to slow down in 2020 though with the lack of new models and the V40 being rationalized. Volvo expects the plug-ins to account for 20% of overall sales, which is incredibly high, translating to approximately 150K units, up from only 43K in 2019!

      Nonetheless the demand for the SUVs does not seem to be abating worldwide, maybe Volvo will be exploring new segments to ride the wave?

      SUV success drives Volvo Cars to sixth straight sales record and beyond 700,000 cars
      Jan 07, 2020 ID: 261377

      Volvo Cars has set a new, sixth consecutive global sales record in 2019, breaking the 700,000 cars sold mark for the first time in its 93-year history. The company recorded sales of 705,452 cars in 2019, an increase of 9.8 per cent compared to 2018, solidly outgrowing the overall market across all regions.



      The new sales record is underpinned by continued strong demand for Volvo Cars’ award-winning line-up. Its three SUV models served as a particular highlight as the company gained market share in China, the US and Europe amid stagnating car markets.



      The company also registered strong demand for its electrified vehicles, both in terms of registered sales as well as in retail orders. Overall, Volvo Cars sold 45,933 plug-in hybrid models in 2019, an increase of 22.9 per cent compared to 2018 and more than double the number in 2017.



      “I am very pleased to see that for the first time in our history we sold more than 700,000 cars, while we gained market share in all our main sales regions,” said Håkan Samuelsson, chief executive. “We aim to build on this positive trend in 2020 as we start to roll out our Recharge range of chargeable Volvos.”



      Illustrating the strength of its portfolio and its sales performance in 2019, Volvo Cars surpassed the previous full-year sales record of 642,253 cars, set in 2018, nearly a full month before the end of the year. December was the company’s best ever sales month, with an 23.4 per cent year-on-year increase to 74,239 cars sold.



      In China, Volvo Cars sold 154,961 cars in 2019, an increase of 18.7 per cent compared to 2018 and comfortably outperforming the overall market. The result is an all-time record for Volvo Cars in China and the highest sales number it has ever reached in a single market.



      In the United States, Volvo Cars sold 108,234 cars, breaking the 100,000 cars sold threshold for the first time since 2007. Compared to 2018, sales increased by 10.1 per cent.



      In Europe, sales were particularly strong in Germany, where the company sold more than 50,000 cars for the first time in its history, while it realised its best sales result since 1990 in the United Kingdom.



      Other markets that recorded their best ever sales performance in the company’s history included Australia, Belgium, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Korea, Poland and Portugal.



      The XC60 SUV continues to be the best-selling car for the company globally, followed by the XC40 and XC90 SUVs, while the sedans and estates in the 90 and 60 Series also contributed to volume growth in China and Europe respectively.



      This year, Volvo Cars will start to roll out its Recharge line-up in markets around the globe. Recharge will be the overarching name for all chargeable Volvos with a fully electric and plug-in hybrid powertrain.



      The Recharge car line aims to further boost sales of Volvo Cars’ chargeable cars and encourage plug-in hybrid drivers via incentives to use Pure mode as much as possible. Volvo Cars aims for plug-in hybrid cars to make up 20 per cent of total sales in 2020.



      Every Volvo model includes a Recharge option, from the small XC40 SUV via the 60 Series cars to the large XC90 SUV flagship. Volvo Cars is the only car maker to offer a plug-in variant on every model in its line-up. Soon, buyers can also opt for the XC40 Recharge P8, Volvo Cars’ first fully electric car.



      A detailed break-up of regional sales is given below.



      December January-December
      2018 2019 Change 2018 2019 Change
      Europe 29,469 34,224 16.1% 317,838 340,605 7.2%

      US 8,826 12,360 40% 98,263 108,234 10.1%
      Other 9,994 10,747 7.5% 95,559 101,652 6.4%
      Total 60,157 74,239 23.4% 642,253 705,452 9.8%


      In 2019 XC60 was the top selling model with sales of 204,965 cars (2018: 187,339 cars), followed by the XC40 at 139,847 cars (2018: 75,828 cars) and the XC90 with sales of 100,729 (2018: 94,182 units).

      Interesting article on 2019 sales in the U.S. market for all the major manufacturers. Volvo’s growth second only to Genesis (which has a much smaller sales volume).
