Volvo Car Malaysia ends 2020 with a 3.6% increase in sales breaking 2019's record.
Despite a rather pandemic ridden 2020, Volvo Car Malaysia ended the year with total sales of 1,950 units, breaking 2019's record of 1,883 units thus setting a new record for the highest sales performance since the establishment of Volvo Car Malaysia.
Nalin Jain, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia, said: “We are very proud of what Volvo Car Malaysia has achieved despite this turbulent time and challenges that we faced. Through the collective efforts of our dealers and staff, as well as the opportune timing of the government’s sales tax holiday, we were able to finish a challenging year strongly. For us, seeing the results of our efforts has further recharged our drive to bring more premium, safe and sustainable cars to Malaysians.”
The PENJANA initiative by the government definitely helped many automakers including Volvo record their second-highest sales of the month in July 2020.
What about 2021?
Well, Volvo aims to ride on the momentum from 2020 and is entering 2021 with renewed purpose and recharging all areas of its business, to continue to provide more Malaysians with a premium experience and freedom to move in a personal, sustainable, and safe way.
Nalin concluded by saying that “2021 will be a big year for Volvo Car Malaysia as we look to switch all aspects of our business to incorporate more sustainable solutions and also bring in more product offerings to suit the different needs of Malaysians while helping them make more sustainable choices.
“We will continue to push for digital transformation to build a strong digital system to support our customer’s journey seamlessly – from the beginning of the buying process to owning a Volvo and the aftersales care that they need, while upholding our promise of professional service, leading safety technology, and a caring mindset in everything we do.”
What we do know is that we can expect to see the Volvo XC40 T5 Recharge hit our roads soon as confirmed by Nalin during his interview on The Driver's Seat with Carlist.my. It might even be in the first quarter of this year. We wait and see.
