Volvo Trucks is enjoying an increased sales figure of 74% in May as compared with the year-earlier period. It is mainly due to the widespread success of the FH and FM series. In North America, Volvo sold 132% more trucks and in Europe 112% more, resulting in 4,391 trucks delivered in Europe in May, recording a 92% year-on-year increase for the Western part of the continent alone. However, the same strong trends are being showed on the German and French markets, where the Volvo FMX construction truck was launched in 2010 and had a positive feedback from customers as deliveries rose 77% in May and an increase of 72% was recorded in Germany. In Russia, Volvo Trucks achieved an impressive increase of 436% in comparison with the same period of 2010 and, thus, the Eastern Europe deliveries have risen to 198% in May. In North America, truck deliveries in May amounted to 2,093 , up 117% compared with May 2010. Good news does not end here for Volvo as it continued to dominate car markets from South America with 2,118 vehicles delivered. In Brazil, the Volvo VM is highly appreciated for its low fuel consumption. 142 trucks were demanded in South Africa, which represents an increase of 142% as compared with the year-earlier period. Favorable conditions in the freight industry in general have brought a continuous demand as older trucks were replaced by new ones, while the customers became more and more interested in acquiring Volvo trucks that were equipped with new energy-efficient engines which provided EPA10 emission legislation requirements.
