Volvo Canada posts strong January sales results

 

For immediate release

 

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.

 

Steve Blyth, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of Canada, credited the sales increase to a strong interest in the company’s XC-range of vehicles during the winter months. “The XC70 and XC90 continue to prove popular with Canadians,” he said. “Rugged and capable, they are well suited to this country’s climate. Congratulations to our Volvo retailers, employees and corporate partners for a successful start to the New Year.”

 

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 43 Volvo automobile retailers across the country. The company’s product range includes the flagship S80 luxury sedan, the versatile V70 wagon, the S60 sports sedan, the compact and sporty S40 and V50, and an XC-line of vehicles that includes the rugged XC70 and the award-winning XC90 sport utility vehicle. For 2006, the company is proud to introduce the second-generation C70 convertible with a new retractable three piece hardtop.
