Sales increase 14 percent for the month
Irvine, CA – December 1, 2006 – Volvo Cars of North America, LLC reports sales of 9,258 units in the United States*, representing a 14.1 percent year-over-year increase for November.
Sales of the new S40 sedan remain strong, as were the results for the Volvo S60 which has benefited from aggressive regional advertising and lease deals. The XC90, the best-selling European SUV, is again Volvo's sales leader with a consistent performance for the month.
Also for November, the S80 sell-off winds down to make room for the MY 07 all new S80, which will begin to arrive in showrooms later this month.
Looking ahead for Volvo, there was much acclaim for the highly anticipated new C30 this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show - its North American debut. Sales start is scheduled for second half of 2007.
Overall in North America (United States plus Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico), Volvo recorded 10,021 units sold. November sales were up 6.1 percent. Sales in Canada were 537 units and 226 units were sold in Mexico.
