Volvo Sold 500,000 XC60 Unit
|   Thursday, May 15, 2014
Volvo has managed to sell 500,000 XC60 units in the six years after launching of its crossover. By passing over this sales threshold, the Volvo XC60 becomes the best selling Volvo model in the last five years.

The XC60's results are even more impressive if we look at the first sales threshold of 100,000 units sold, achieved in 2012. Basically, the interesting achievement of the Swedes is that they have managed to sell nearly 400,000 units XC60 in the past two years.
Only in the first four months of this year, Volvo has sold 41,920 XC60 units globally. This represents an increase of 24.2 percent over the same period of the last year.

"With the XC60 we have shown that we have the ability to compete on equal terms with our German rivals like BMW and Audi, and it gives us strength to do the same with future models. This is a car that is not only a success today but will continue to be one in future" said Alain Visser, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.

The Volvo XC60 copy number 500,000 went to the United States, the largest market for this model. The Americans bought nearly 73,000 Volvo XC60 units in the past six years, followed closely by China with 70,000 units. The following positions in the ranking of Volvo XC60 sales are occupied by Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom, according to data released by Volvo Cars.

The Swedish company has managed to sell nearly 400,000 units in 2013, but the Chinese from Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, owners of Volvo Cars, want be double that amount byl 2020 and exceed one million units per year in the long term.
"I see no reason why more of our models won't sell just as well. For example, we are confident that the V40 will achieve over 100,000 units sold during this year and I see that as just one more step on the journey towards our long-term goal of selling 800,000 cars annually" continued Alain Visser.

There are several reasons for the success of the Volvo XC60, Alain Visser said. Part of the explanation is that the car came at the right time.
"Most of all, the XC60 is a timeless model and a very good representation of what Volvo's brand stands for. The ability to personalize the model with a wide range of accessories has also been an important factor in its success. "

The XC60 was redesigned in early 2013 together with almost the whole Volvo range. In the XC60 range, restyling brought a revised front look with a new radiator grille, hood receiving other ribs, modified optical blocks and a different front bumper. The City Safety radar system was subtly integrated into the front grille. The most significant change was the elimination of a set of optical blocks mounted on the front between the grille and the optical blocks themselves with the increased front grille. The engine range also received a number of updates. The same thing happened in the case of model's interior.
