The first half of this year was a record one for Volvo Cars.

In total, Volvo sold 340,826 cars in the first six months of 2019, a leap of 7.3% compared to last year.

Sales figures grew in Europe, the United States, and in particularly China where Volvo now lays claim to the title of fastest growing premium car maker.  The record-breaking sales have been fuelled by strong demand for Volvo’s award-winning SUV range, such as the XC60, XC40, and the XC90, while Volvo has also started the first deliveries of its mild-hybrid powered models to customers.

The XC40 and XC60 were the most popular Volvo products in Europe, where total sales in the January-to-June reached almost 175,000, and in the UK sales rose by an impressive 29.6 per cent.
