Media information – not for publication


Volvo Cars looks forward to welcoming you to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which is set to be a significant event for the company.


The firm achieved a third consecutive year of record sales globally in 2016, selling 534,322 cars (up 6.2% on 2015's figure). A large part of this success was a strong performance from Volvo Car UK, which marked its highest sales volumes in a quarter of a century, with 46,696 cars sold (a 7% increase on 2015).


With challenging sales targets of 800,000 globally, and 60,000 in the UK by 2020, the coming months and years will see a continuation of the complete renewal of Volvo's product portfolio.
