Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. today announced vehicle sales reached 380 units in October, off 16.1 percent from the same month last year.
Year-to-date, Volvo Canada sold 5,433 units, off 5.8 percent from the first 10 months of 2008.
"Since its introduction this past spring, the XC60 has continued to perform well to the point that we can't get sufficient quantity from the manufacturing plant to meet demand," said Jeff Pugliese, President and CEO of Volvo Canada. "When combined with the dwindling stock of the S60 sedan in preparation for the 2010 launch of the next-generation model, it illustrates why we maintain a positive perspective on last month's new vehicle sales performance and remain optimistic for the future."
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.
