Volvo Cars increased its sales in the U.S. by as much as 41 percent in April making it more than twice because the market grew by 18 percent. The success of the new S60 and a boost of the XC60, is blamed for the impassive numbers, writes Dagens Industri.

"In April, car sold was just under 2000 cars, the same month last year the figure was zero, "said Doug Speck, President of Volvo Car Corporation in the U.S., to Dagens Industri on the success of the S60.


1200 XC60 cars were sold making it an increase of 46 percent. The American customers tend to change themselves down in size, which explains that the types of car model they are going for these days.

Volvo's sales have now risen for four consecutive months, after a dismal last year when it declined by 12 percent while the market grew by 11 percent.

“We will lie between 10 and 30 percent over last year's figures every month for the rest of the year, "said Doug Speck, to Dagens Industri.
