Volvo USA Sets Best January Sales in 12 Years

With a slate of new models, Volvo sales in the US keep growing. The brand posted its best January in 12 years as part of 13 straight months of year-over-year growth.

Volvo Car USA sold 6,157 vehicles in the first month of the year, up from 5,854 in the same month of 2019. Much of that growth came from crossovers, with the XC40, XC60, and XC90 up a combined 28 percent over the same month a year before. Volvo says that the V60 and V60 Cross Country also fared well, showing “strong growth” to start the year off.

“The XC range continues to attract people into the Volvo family,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA. “We anticipate this momentum to continue as we ready the introduction of our first electric SUV, the XC40 Recharge, which has already garnered significant interest from customers.”

The XC40, XC60, and XC90 saw sales of 1,303, 1,737, and 1,994 respectively, a number that’s especially impressive for the XC90, up 39.7 percent from January 2019. The V60 models were both up more than 2,000 percent, but that means just 241 sales of the Cross Country and 59 of the standard model. The S90 saw sales drop 90 percent to just 34 and only 10 people took home a V90 wagon.
