My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES OCTOBER - VOLVO - A near doubling of sales this October gives an overall 12.5% increase YTD.
Volvo Cars of North America, LLC, (VCNA) reported U.S. sales of 7,422 units, an 86.9 percent increase versus October 2014. Year-to-date sales are up 12.5 percent over the first ten months of 2014.
The top seller for the month was the all-new XC90 luxury SUV with 2,565 units sold. The XC60 showed continued growth with 1,912 units sold, a 15.7 percent increase versus October 2014. The XC60 also represents the top seller year-to-date with 20,546 units sold, a 32.1 percent increase.
“We are just starting to see the true potential of XC90 sales in the U.S. market which has led us to the best month we’ve seen since 2008 and the best October since 2007,” said Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America. “Strong performance across the 60 range continues, led by the XC60, which also significantly contributed to this month’s success.”
Following an $11 billion investment, the positive momentum has materialized with the first all-new model off the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, the XC90, with world-first safety technologies, a new design language, new powertrain architecture and a range of class-leading connectivity services.
