Furthermore, figures from June 2022 were negatively affected by lower production due to last year's supply chain constraints.

The Volvo XC60 was the top-selling model in the U.S. during the month, with sales of 3,925 cars, followed by the XC90, with total sales at 3,645 cars, and the XC40 at 2,193 cars.

“It was a strong month with continued demand for our Recharge plug-in and fully electric models,” said Michael Cottone, President, Volvo Car USA and Canada. “Recharge momentum is growing and further ensuring that our journey to being fully electric by 2030 will be successful.”
