Volvo pushes for 800,000 global Volvo sales by 2020.
Under the ownership of the Chinese company, Geely Motors, there is no doubting the Swedish car company has come along in leaps and bounds and the best could still be to come for Volvo.
Following a record sales year in 2015 with more than 500,000 sales, Volvo has now set its sights on 800,000 annual global car sales by 2020.
Lex Kerssemakers is the boss of Volvo cars USA, he says the ambitious goal can be met with the right cars available in global Volvo dealerships.
“We have small cars now, the S40 and V40. But the new small car platform will incorporate the latest advances in emissions, autonomous driving and accident-free driving that are part of Volvo’s strategic vision.
“The new small-car architecture will also incorporate lessons learned during the development of the platform that now supports vehicles, such as the XC90, which was recently named the North American Truck of the Year, the S60 and new S90.”
“We don’t have anyone but ourselves to blame if things don’t work out, we have our destiny in our own hands.”
