Volvo Car USA reports 3,866 cars were sold in April, improving week-over-week sales performance throughout the month. Sales were especially strong in Volvo’s southern region and its retailers.
“Though we continue to feel the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has also pushed us to find new ways to continue offering sales and service to our customers,” said Anders Gustafsson, president and CEO of Volvo Car USA.
“I’m especially proud of our retailer partners who’ve managed to safely serve our customers during this time, as well as supporting their communities.”
U.S. sales of Volvos from January through April reached 23,351 vehicles. Compared to the same period last year, sales are down just over 23 percent.
