July 4, 2019 – Mumbai: Despite the overall downtrend in the automobile sector, Volvo Car India has registered a strong 11% increase in sales in the first half of 2019. The company sold 1159 units in Jan-June 2019 against 1044 units in Jan-June 2018. Sales contribution from Mini Metros and Tier-I towns and a good demand for the SUV range aided the growth.
Charles Frump - Managing Director, Volvo Car India said, “We are extremely happy with 11% growth in sales performance so far especially when the industry is not looking positive. Our brand engagement programs continues to play a crucial role in this performance. While the short term market performance looks tough, I am very confident the automobile growth will bounce back and we would be happy to replicate our sales performance of 2018.”
