Volvo’s resurgence that started in 2015 continues its strong performance, turning in a smashing good September. September reporting shows a 4.7% US sales increase vs. September 2018.
The 2015 turning point saw Volvo reach farther into its transformation into a luxury brand, compared to the 1980s and 1990s, when it was a middle-class car. The 2015 transformation year was marked by one important event: the launch of the second-generation XC90 SUV, and with it, Volvo’s then-new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform.
