TORONTO (February 1, 2006) – The strong sales performance of 2005 carried Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. into the new year with sales of 598 units for the month of January, an increase of 2.6 per cent over the 583 units sold in the same month of 2005.
The results marked the fifth consecutive year that the company has posted year-over-year sales increases in January.

Congratulations to our Volvo retailers, employees and corporate partners for a successful start to the New Year.”
