The new registrations of passenger cars in April in Sweden show that Volvo Cars has the country’s most popular cars with the Volvo V60 at the top also as a plug-in hybrid. This month’s registrations are affected by the temporary production halt, but the factories in Sweden, Belgium and China are now back in operation.
The trade organization Bil Sweden presented the figures for newly registered passenger cars in Sweden for April. The relatively low registrations that characterize Volvo Cars as well as the industry as a whole are a result of the production being temporarily paused due to the Corona pandemic.
“We have found ourselves in circumstances where we have not been able to build and deliver cars as planned. It is gratifying that we are still Sweden’s largest car brand and that production has now started again,” says Volvo Car Sweden’s Sales Director Fredrik Isakson.
Volvo Cars registered 3,082 cars in April. Volvo S / V 60 leads the registration peak with 1,327 cars. Volvo S / V90 is in second place (646) and XC60 in fourth place (557).
Of Volvo Cars’ total registrations in Sweden, 30 percent are plug-in hybrids, and the Volvo V60 is the most popular car with hybrid drive.
“Our goal is to sell 30 percent plug-in hybrids in Sweden by 2020, and it is a good thing that the registrations are already at that level despite the general decline,” says Fredrik Isakson.
