Volvo reports exceptional sales results in the United States, where it recorded the best May sales volume on record – 13,221 and up 38.9% year-on-year – and the 12th consecutive month of growth.
Rechargeable electric cars, sold under the Recharge sub-brand, represented 20.8% last month, that is to say about 2,750 units.
This is one of the best results (share) for established brands we’ve seen so far. Just a few months ago, it was barely 10%.
In California, in particular, the share was 47.7%. The previous month it was 47.5%.
“The brand’s share of Recharge models – vehicles equipped with fully electric or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains – continued to grow, accounting for 20.8% of total May sales. Recharge models accounted for 47.7% of all Volvo sales in California.
Volvo mainly offers plug-in hybrids, but the biggest boost probably comes from the new all-electric Volvo XC40 Recharge. This new model entered the market (well, after a prolonged wait) just a few weeks ago.
Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President of Volvo Car Americas and Chief Executive Officer of Volvo Car USA said:
“Volvo Cars continues to transform. Sustainability remains as important as safety and the increased interest in our Recharge products shows that consumers are looking towards a greener future. With a full year of growth, Volvo Car USA is focused on maintaining momentum and growing electricity sales.
