Volvo Car USA reports September sales of 9,350 cars amid supply challenges

  • Volvo Car USA reported 9,350 sales in September, down nine percent versus 2020
  • U.S. sales are up 29.6 percent year-to-date
  • Underlying demand for Volvo Cars’ products remains very robust


MAHWAH, NJ (October 1, 2021) Volvo Car USA posted a September sales result of 9,350 cars, down nine percent versus 2020. Year-to-date the brand is up 29.6 percent, an increase of 21,761 cars sold in the same period last year.


The brand’s share of Recharge models – vehicles with fully electric or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains – held steady, representing 18.2 percent of total September sales in the United States. In California, Recharge volume grew to 52 percent of sales in the state.


Throughout 2021, the automotive industry has faced inventory challenges due to supply constraints. Volvo Cars continues to monitor the situation and currently expects that, for the balance of the year, it will be challenging to meet consumer demand for Volvo products. 


“The Volvo brand has delivered three consecutive years of growth in the U.S., and underlying demand for our products is robust,” said Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President, Volvo Car Americas and President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “While our entire industry is feeling the impact of a challenged supply chain, our outlook for the remainder of 2021 remains strong.”
