Continued strong sales for S40 and V40 combined with recently introduced 2001 V70 wagons helped Volvo achieve its best month every with a record sales of 14,073 units during June. This is an 11.1% increase when compared to June 1999 and caps 17 consecutive months of year to year sales increases.

VCNA President and CEO Mark LaNeve observes: "June was a big month for Volvo as we continue to exceed expectations with S40 and V40 as well as the all new V70 sportswagon series. Our S80 luxury sedan also performed well in June and we are anxiously waiting the launch of our new all-wheel-drive Cross Country, which we begin to ship in July. We are well positioned to meet our objective of sales volume above 140,000 this year."
