Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. today announced vehicle sales reached 508 units in September, off 6.4 percent from the same month last year.
Year-to-date, Volvo Canada sold 5,053 units, off 4.9 percent from the first nine months of 2008.
"Supply of 2009 models dwindled last month as shipments of 2010 vehicles ramped-up," said Jeff Pugliese, President and CEO of Volvo Canada. "For this model year, the XC60 will continue to be a major focus for the company and retailers. Now offered with a 3.2-litre engine and a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive, the XC60 is attracting attention to both the brand and our popular XC-range of vehicles."
Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. is part of the Volvo Car Corporation of Göteborg, Sweden. The company provides marketing, sales, parts, service, technology and training support to the 41 Volvo automobile retailers across the country. The company's product range includes the stylish and sporty C30, the elegant C70 hardtop convertible, the compact S40 sedan, the S60 sport sedan, the S80 flagship sedan and the versatile V50 and V70 wagon. For customers looking for a Volvo vehicle with all-road capability, the company offers the versatile XC70 and XC90. Volvo Canada is also expanding its line-up with the introduction of the new XC60, a crossover with the award-winning City Safety system on the standard equipment list.
