Volvo Cars reported global sales of 66,379 cars in June, up 33% compared with the same month last year.

In Europe, sales grew 70% to 27,196 cars, compared to last year. The share of Recharge models reached 58% of overall sales in the region. For the first six months of the year, sales increased 23% to 146,943 cars.

US sales reached 12,933 cars in June, up 53% compared to last year. Sales of Volvo Cars’ Recharge models grew 79% and the share of total sales ended up at 29%. For the first half year of 2023, sales in the U.S. reached 59,750, an increase of 18%.

In June, the Volvo XC60 was the top-selling model with sales of 21,053 cars (2022: 18,275 units), followed by the XC40, with total sales at 18,170 cars (2022: 10,194 units) and the XC90 at 9,895 cars (2022: 9,949 units)
