ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (May 3, 2016) - Volvo Car USA, LLC, (VCUSA) reported U.S. sales of 6,169 vehicles, a 33.1 percent increase versus April 2015. Year-to-date sales are up 22.7 percent over the first four months of 2015.

Sales for the month of April were led by the award-winning XC90 luxury sedan with 3,009 vehicles sold. Most recently, the 2016 XC90 has been awarded a 5-Star Crash Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the highest overall ranking available from the agency.

“With 33 percent growth for the month versus 2015, and ten consecutive months of double digit growth, we are seeing the positive impact of the award-winning XC90,” said Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “This, coupled with the fact that we have already exceeded pre-orders for the S90 is quite telling of what is to come from Volvo.”
