Volvo Car Corp.’s China sales rose 7.6 percent to 166,300 in 2020 as a sustained rebound since April enabled the Swedish carmaker to overcome a 31 percent first-quarter decline caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
In December, Volvo delivered 18,547 vehicles in China, a jump of 10 percent from a year earlier, Volvo’s China unit said this week.
The XC60 crossover remained Volvo’s top-selling model in the market last year, with deliveries reaching 61,616.
It was followed by the S90 sedan, the XC40 crossover, the S60 sedan and the XC90 SUV, which generated respective volumes of 35,631, 22,660, 21,681 and 17,376, according to Volvo China.
Volvo is the second luxury automotive brand to release 2020 sales figures for China. Earlier this week, General Motors said Cadillac deliveries rose 7.9 percent to top 230,000 last year.
