Volvo Car USA Sees Continued Growth of Electrified Cars in March
Volvo Car USA reported that the March sales of Volvo electric and plug-in hybrid cars in the U.S. were up 92 per cent over the same period last year, with 9,428 vehicles sold overall despite continued supply constraints and other industry challenges.
The company’s Recharge models (EVs and PHEVs) represented nearly 26 per cent of total March sales nationwide, led by the company’s SUVs and crossovers. In California, Recharge sales were up 75 per cent and accounted for more than 54 per cent of total sales over the same period last year.
The Volvo Car Americas region reported 11,766 cars sold in March, down 5.2 per cent from the same period last year. Volvo Car Canada saw a nearly 206 per cent growth in Recharge sales and an overall sales increase of 0.5 per cent year-over-year. More than 60 per cent of sales in Latin America were of Recharge models. 3,598 Recharge models were sold in the Americas region representing 30.6 per cent of the total volume.
“Within a challenging landscape across the Americas, we close out the first quarter on a high electrified note,” said Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President, Volvo Car Americas and President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “Demand for Volvo cars remains strong, and we are confident that consumers will continue to switch to electrified products and keep Volvo at the top of their consideration list.”
