The Volvo XC40 has claimed yet another significant honour, adding the New Car of the Year title in the Motor Trader 2019 Awards to its impressive collection. Its success confirms its status as a game-changing model in the fiercely competitive premium compact SUV market, more than a year on from its UK debut.
Volvo Cars today reports a record revenue for the first six months of 2019 of SEK130.1 billion, up from SEK122.9 billion year-on-year and buoyed by the best first half-year sales performance in the company’s history.
Refill, a campaign to combat single-use plastic bottles, has won Natalie Fee the Volvo Visionaries 2019 award. The award, presented by Volvo Car UK with The Sunday Times, was established to celebrate the work of entrepreneurs who want to improve the world around us.
Volvo Car UK has sustained its exceptional new car sales performance through the first half of 2019, selling 29,989 units. The total marks an impressive 27% increase in sales volume on the same period last year and keeps the company on course to meet its target of 60,000 annual sales by 2020.
The Volvo XC40 has already proved a great success, the soaring popularity of the brand's first compact premium SUV helping deliver unprecedented sales growth since it arrived in showrooms in February 2018. Now the appeal of the multi-award-winning XC40 is being enriched with new powertrain options and features, and even more generous specification levels.
Volvo Car UK is redefining the new car test drive as an authentically premium service with the introduction of its new Test Drive+ programme across its retailer network. Test Drive+ is tailored to meet customers' needs and preferences throughout the process, from a convenient booking service to providing the car they are interested in at a location and for a length of time that suits them best.
With the release of the Volvo XC90 Armoured, Volvo Cars takes another step as a manufacturer of armoured vehicles. The cars are designed and built to provide safe and comfortable travel with a high level of personal protection for the occupants.
