Records Second Consecutive Month of Year-Over-Year Sales Growth
ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (Aug. 3, 2009) - Volvo Cars of North America, LLC, reported sales of 6,441 units in the United States for July, a 25.7 percent increase over last July's sales, marking the second straight month of year-over-year sales increases.
Overall in North America (United States and Canada), Volvo has sold 40,205 units year-to-date, which represents a 27.7 percent decrease for the same period of 2008*. However, for the month of July, Volvo sales in Canada were up 39.4 percent, with 591 units sold.
Volvo forecasted higher sales this July, attributing much of the success to the company's Safe + Sound Coverage Plan, which has been extended through the end of August. Safe + Sound is available on all 2009 models. This complimentary coverage program offers tremendous value to buyers by wrapping a comprehensive list of benefits into one package. Volvo has combined additional time and mileage limits on warranty repairs and roadside assistance coverage along with enhancing wear-item coverage and extending factory scheduled maintenance coverage.

"We're headed in the right direction," said Doug Speck, VCNA president and CEO, "Safe + Sound appeals to consumers who are wary of purchasing new vehicles because they can appreciate the value of not needing to worry about maintenance costs on top of the expense of paying for the car."
