Speaking on the annual sales performance, Charles Frump, Managing Director - Volvo Car India said, "We had a strong performance in the last Financial year because of greater customer demand for our award-winning products and new dealer openings. We continue to be optimistic about the future, but are somewhat cautious about the year ahead owing to external factors and predictions of an impending downtrend."


Volvo has opened 5 new dealerships and a spare parts warehouse last year. The company has been increasing the localisation levels of its models sold in India in order to make them more affordable and XC40 is also expected to enter local assembly soon.
