Volvo Car Canada Ltd. Reports May Sales Results

RICHMOND HILL, ON (Thursday, June 3, 2021) – Volvo Car Canada Ltd. is pleased to announce a strong May result: a total of 1,009 vehicles were retailed throughout the month, for an increase of 67 percent over May of 2020. Year-to-date, the company exceeded last year’s results, delivering a total of 4,141 units, or an increase of 84 percent.

 

May marked the eleventh consecutive month of year-over-year growth for the Volvo brand in Canada. As in previous months, these results were buoyed by continued demand for Recharge powertrains, which accounted for 19 percent of all sales in the month of May. Led by the volume driving XC40 SUV, which retailed its best month on record with 406 units, Volvo’s exciting lineup of plug-in hybrid and pure electric SUVs continued to resonate with Canadian consumers.

 

May also marked a record month for Certified by Volvo sales, which retailed 284 units for a year-over-year growth of 13 percent. Year-to-date, 1,439 Certified by Volvo units have been delivered, representing a year-over-year increase of 62 percent. 

 

“This has been another great month for our brand,” said Matt Girgis, managing director of Volvo Car Canada Ltd. "Strong growth across all areas of the business and continued interest in our Recharge line of electric vehicles demonstrates the overall resiliency of our product. Summer driving season is here, and warmer weather is gradually bringing customers back into the Volvo showroom. We look forward to continuing this success well into the summer.”
