Chennai, July 8: Volvo Car India registered a 11 per cent increase in sales in the first half of 2019. The company sold 1159 units between January to June 2019 against 1044 units in January to June 2018. Sales contribution from Mini Metros and Tier-I towns and a good demand for the SUV range aided the growth, said a press release.
Managing Director, Volvo Car India, Charles Frump, said, ‘We are extremely happy with 11 per cent growth in sales performance so far especially when the industry is not looking positive. Our brand engagement programs continue to play a crucial role in this performance.’ He added, ‘While the short-term market performance looks tough, I am very confident the automobile growth will bounce back and we would be happy to replicate our sales performance of 2018.’
