With a mission to excel in automotive safety and reliability, plus that goal to provide the best service for the local motoring community, it was indeed a perfect 20/20 for Volvo Philippines last 2014. Upon marking their 20th anniversary, an achievement was made, as they bested a record 20% growth in retail sales last year.
Happily announcing to the Philippine motoring media, Volvo Philippines highlighted its milestone with not just pure optimism, but with facts and figures as well. This success was due to the market’s good reception of its best-selling XC60, S60, and V40 models. Things went on a remarkable up-spike for the Swedish premium automaker in October of last year, as they had surpassed their record sale in 2013, and by the end of December, 2014 sales charts soared with a stunning 20% or more increase, further shattering 2013’s records by a long shot.
Volvo Philippines will continue to strive for excellence, but not just that, they will also embark on yet another mission – to reinvigorate the Philippine automotive industry by ushering in an array of new and exciting customer experiences

“We have already started rolling out new and unique customer programs in 2014. Our valued clients and new Volvo owners can definitely look forward to what we have in store for them this coming year” said Volvo Philippines Senior Marketing Manager Mr. Chris Yu.
