Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. today announced vehicle sales reached 901 units in June, a 16.6 percent increase over May and a 3.2 percent increase over the same month last year.
Year-to-date, Volvo Canada sold 3,427 units, off 12 percent from the first six months of 2008.
"Volvo sales have continued their month-over-month momentum since January and ramped-up to positive year-over-year growth in June," said Jeff Pugliese, President and CEO of Volvo Canada. "Our XC-range - and the new XC60 in particular - proved popular with Canadians, but so did the S40 and S80 sedans and the C30. We're looking forward to a successful sell-down of 2009 model before introducing the 2010 model year and the XC60 with a new, 3.2-litre engine."
