RICHMOND HILL, ON (Friday, October 1, 2021) – Volvo Car Canada Ltd. is pleased to report a strong September sales result: a total of 1,074 vehicles were retailed throughout the month, representing an increase of 0.8 percent compared to the same period last year. Year-to-date, the company continues to exceed last year’s results, and has delivered a total of 8,420 units, for an increase of 35.7 percent.
September marked the 15th consecutive month of year-over-year growth for the Volvo brand in Canada. As in previous months, these results were bolstered by continued demand for the brand’s electrified vehicles, with Recharge powertrains accounting for 23 percent of all new vehicle sales in September.
As it enters the final quarter of the year, Volvo Cars Canada is closing off a strong third quarter, with sales up 5 percent and 23 percent when compared to the third quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.
September also marked a strong month for Certified by Volvo sales, which retailed 262 units. Year-to-date, 2,601 Certified by Volvo units have been delivered, representing a year-over-year increase of 10.9 percent.
"Our third-quarter results have left us in a strong position heading into the final three months of the year,” said Matt Girgis, managing director of Volvo Car Canada Ltd. “Our focus on safety, sustainability, and electrification continues to resonate with Canadians, and with an exciting lineup of model year 2022 vehicles set to arrive in showrooms within the coming months, I believe we are well positioned to end the year on a high note.”
