Volvo Car Corp.'s deliveries in China rose 13 percent year on year to 14,920 in last month, extending double-digit sales growth in its largest market so far this year.
Through September, its deliveries in China totaled 109,512, an increase of 14 percent from a year earlier, Volvo said.
The Swedish carmaker attributed the robust sales to sustained strong demand for two locally built models – the XC60 midsize SUV and the S90 full-size sedan.
In China, Volvo also produces the XC40 compact crossover and the elongated S60.
The Swedish carmaker has started production for its electrified performance-vehicle brand Polestar in China.
A plant jointly built by Volvo and its Chinese parent Zhejiang Geely Holding Group in the southwest China city of Chengdu is producing its first product, the Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid coupé.
Output of the brand’s second product, the Polestar 2 full-electric sedan, is due to to begin in early 2020 at Geely’s Luqiao plant in east China’s Zhejiang province.
Other global luxury brands have yet to disclose their September sales for China.
