Remarkably, the increase on different continents is almost the same. For example, Volvo Cars in Europe with 166,822 cars was 35 percent higher, China showing 45 percent growth with 95,252 cars, and the United States doing nearly well with an increase of over 47 percent to 63,754 cars. In June, growth in Europe weakened sharply to just 1%, while China, which had a healthy 10% growth, was also lower than in previous months.
A quarter of the new Volvo belongs to the line of recharging with an all-electric or plug-in hybrid drive. Thus, the share of Recharge models was almost 150 percent higher than it was in the first half of 2020. Moreover, SUVs such as the XC40, XC60 and XC90 do well with the Swedish brand.
