Volvo Cars looks forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, which will mark the first public showing of its new V60 premium estate.


As well as achieving a record operating profit in 2017, the firm achieved a fourth consecutive year of record sales globally, selling 571,577 cars (up 7% on 2016). Volvo Car UK played a large part in this success, recording its second-highest sales volumes in 25 years, with 46,139 cars sold, and a market share increase from 1.73% to 1.83%.


Following a raft of successful new model launches, including the recently introduced XC40, the company is looking to make further strides in the coming months as it continues to renew its product line-up and strengthen its technological prowess.
