Volvo Car Corp.’s sales in China have kept recovering at a double-digit pace for five consecutive months since April in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
In August, its China deliveries advanced 11 percent from a year earlier to 15,835, according to numbers the Swedish carmaker released Wednesday.
The number enabled Volvo to offset the 31 percent sales plunge in the first quarter to grow local deliveries through August by 1.5 percent to 95,986.
In 2019, Volvo delivered 154,961 vehicles in China, surging 19 percent from a year earlier. The volume made it the sixth-largest luxury car brand in the market for the year, following Mercedes-Benz, BMW Audi, Cadillac and Lexus.
Other global luxury brands haven’t disclosed their China sales for August.
