“We have a continued positive momentum already before we start deliveries of the new XC90, so we are on track for another good year at Volvo Cars,” said Alain Visser, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars. “More than half of this year’s total volume of the new XC90 has already been sold and our dealerships are now preparing for open doors to show the new car to customers”.
