Volvo deliveries climb 14% behind XC60, S90
2018/10/9
source: automotive news
Volvo Car Corp.¡¯s China sales rose 14 percent to 13,205 in September behind demand for two locally assembled models -- the XC60 compact crossover and the S90 large sedan.
 
 
Through September, Volvo delivered 96,192 light vehicles in China, a jump of 17 percent from the same period last year.

The Swedish carmaker did not release additional details about local sales last month.

Volvo, which also assembles the S60 compact sedan in China, is expanding its lineup of locally produced models.

It is set to begin producing the Volvo XC40 compact crossover as well as high-performance electrified vehicles under the Polestar brand in China next year.

While expanding local output, Volvo has also tapped China as an export hub. It ships the XC60 to the U.S. and the S90 to Europe.

But the Trump administration¡¯s 25 percent tariff imposed in July on China-made cars and other products pose a serious threat to Volvo¡¯s exports to the U.S. from China.

Volvo is seeking an exemption from the tariff with the U.S. Trade Representative's Office for the Chinese-built XC60, which accounted for nearly a third of its U.S. sales in August.

Volvo was acquired by private Chinese carmaker Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co. from Ford Motor Co. in 2010.
