STOCKHOLM -- Volvo Cars' vehicle sales grew 11.3 percent to 42,434 in April as gains in the U.S. and Europe offset lower demand in China.
The gain marked the 11th straight month of growth for the automaker.
Strong demand for the new XC90 SUV helped to drive sales higher in the month, Volvo said in statement on Tuesday.
The XC60 remained its top-selling model globally.
The Sweden-based carmaker, which is owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, said it grew sales in all major regions except China.
U.S sales increased 33 percent driven by the XC90, its best-selling Volvo model in the United States, Volvo said.
Sales in western Europe were up by 13 percent. China sales fell 6.7 percent.
Four-month global sales rose 12 percent to 145,845.
