Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. today announced vehicle sales reached 625 units in December, up a strong 133 percent from the same month in 2008.
At 6,542 units, Volvo Canada sold more vehicles in 2009 than it did in 2008.
"With appealing offers through the holiday season and a concerted push from our sales team, we were able to achieve our 2009 target of surpassing 2008 new vehicle sales," said Jeff Pugliese, President and CEO of Volvo Canada. "That sales performance was buoyed in large part by the success of our XC-Range as the XC60, XC70 and XC90 represented more than 60 percent of our overall volume."
Pugliese added that 2010 will be a busy year for Volvo Canada. "We're looking forward this year as the XC60 continues to show potential for growth in the market particularly with the launch of a new R-Design version. As well, the new 2011 C30 and C70 will begin arriving at Volvo retailers this quarter and we will launch the all-new S60 sedan in the second-half of the year."
