Western European sales grew by 8.6 per cent, mainly driven by Southern European markets and strong demand for the Volvo V40 and XC60 models. Spain and Italy were up by 54.7 and 13.7 per cent, respectively. Sweden retains its strong market share at close to 20 per cent with the Volvo XC60 and XC70 models as best-selling models.

Volvo Cars’ largest market is China where retail sales amounted to 6,967 units in May with sales for the locally produced Volvo S60L and XC60 models up 11.5 and 12.6 per cent, respectively. Sales in the US market were flat with 5,023 retail deliveries with the XC60 and S60 models the top sellers.
