Sales for the premium SUV manufacturer increased 13.9% in October compared with the same month in 2018.

Volvo Cars sold 60,959 units in October, with sales growth recorded in the U.S., China, and Europe. According to the carmaker, the double-digit volume growth in the month was mainly driven by a continued strong demand for its XC60, followed by the XC40 and XC90. Volvo Cars’ latest models, the V60 estate and the US-built S60 sedan, are also said to have contributed to the strong performance. Sales in China reached 14,039 cars in October (+26.7%), and were up 20.2% in the U.S. to 8,807 units and 9.7% in Europe to 29,510 units.
