The best month ever in Volvo cars’ sales history

September proved auspicious for Swedish premium brand Volvo after posting a 30.5 percent increase, the best month ever in Volvo cars’ sales history.

Driven by strong sales on a number of markets, total sales from January to September reached 333,865 cars, a 22.5-percent increase from the same period last year.

Sweden remained the top-selling market while Volvo Car Overseas Corp., which includes Volvo Philippines, also did very well as a whole with a growth of 49.6 percent.

China remained as its most important buyer, having more than doubled its September figure from 2010 to 4,765 cars, with the S60 luxury sedan and XC60 premium compact SUV as two of the most favorites.

As the world’s first commercially available vehicle that has the ability to stop by itself when encountering an obstacle in front, the XC60 remains Volvo’s bestselling model worldwide followed by the All-New S60, V60, XC90 and V50.

“Here in the Philippines, we are looking forward to an optimistic last quarter and an even more dynamic 2012 with the introduction of new models and variants that will make it possible for Volvo to compete in segments where the brand was not present before.

Plans of expanding the network is also underway in our effort to share with the Philippine market the new breed of sleek, smart and strong Volvos,” shared Rose Dimalanta, Viking Cars Inc., Volvo brand’s authorized dealer and distributor in the Philippines.
