Volvo Cars’ record year for sales continues unabated, as the manufacturer reported a 14.5% rise in worldwide sales last month.

Having sold 441,931 cars in 2018 to date, Volvo is on course to beat last year’s global sales total of 571,577 units sold in 2017.

The United States and China led the way for Volvo’s sales growth, but sales in the domestic European market rose by nearly 5% in August with demand high for the new XC60, the 90 series cars and the XC40.  The new XC60 has been Volvo’s biggest seller this year, with 116,381 sold worldwide in the opening eight months of 2018.
