Volvo Cars reported its fifteen consecutive month of retail sales growth in September and announced that its global sales increased to 44,491 vehicles, an 8.6 percent increase versus September last year. According to the official press release, Volvo sold 7,342 cars in China, its largest market, thanks to models such as the XC60 crossover or the S60L sedan.

What’s more surprising is that Volvo sold 4,987 cars in Sweden, representing a 6.1 percent increase from the same month last year. Moreover, the overall performance in Europe in September showed 11.6 percent increase versus September last year.

Volvo says that UK and Germany showed solid multi-digit growth and the V40 remained its best-selling model in Europe. In the United States, Volvo’s fourth-largest market, the Swedish manufacturer reported a 11.4 percent increase and the S60 and XC60 models were the best-selling vehicles during September.

“I am pleased to see growth in all our major markets in September, which further supports the positive sales momentum we have seen this year,” says Alain Visser, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars. “We remain solidly on track to realize an all-time high sales result in 2014.” [source: Volvo]
