Volvo Cars is on pace for a record setting year. The premium automaker is set to release additional models to their current lineup and sales are already 10.5 percent above last year’s mark. In fact, according to the folks at Volvo, the company has more than tripled its operating income for the first half of the year. The growth has been seen in all three global regions, with the U.S. outpacing Europe and China at 24.8 percent.  Sales of the XC90 have already exceeded expectations since its introduction and the company predicts that the launch of the S90 Sedan and V90 Estate will only accelerate the positive trend. According to president and chief executive, Håkan Samuelsson, “these numbers demonstrate that the momentum around Volvo Cars’ transformation is building.” Time will tell if Volvo can sustain the record pace.
