Volvo Trucks’ deliveries to Europe rose by 16% between January and April, totalling 18,228 units.

Deliveries to Eastern Europe increased by 67% to 5,073 trucks. In North America, deliveries dropped by 54% to 5,308. All told, deliveries decreased by 8%, totalling 30,423 trucks.

Deliveries between January-April amounted to 30,423 vehicles, down 8% compared with the same period last year. The decrease in deliveries is fully attributable to North America where the new emissions legislation continues to make an impact.

All the other regions show higher deliveries. Europe (+16%), and especially Eastern Europe (+67%), continue to show strong delivery figures. Deliveries in South America (+32%) are also strong, Volvo said in a statement.
