Volvo will revise upward its 2020 sales target
Volvo has the potential to improve its already ambitious target of increasing global sales to around 800,000 units by 2020.
CEO, Hakan Samuelsson, anticipated it at the Automobile News Europe Congress in Barcelona.
But the manager pointed out that raising the target is not an absolute priority for the Swedish carmaker, what matters is the consolidation of the business.
Last year Volvo has globally sold 534,332 units by establishing a new record that, according to Samuelsson, will surely be beaten even in 2017.
To support the constant manufacturer's future growth, reborn after being passed under the control of the Chinese Geely, will also contribute the next generation of the XC60 (Volvo's bestseller and ready to debut during the summer) and the next debut of the new XC40, that will compete on the compact crossover segment.
Also important is the anticipated rise of the Polestar brand that is about to become a premium sports electric vehicle manufacturer.
