The Swedish icon now holds 3.28% of the UK car market which represents the largest share in over 30 years. Dealerships had been closed for this period due to the national lockdown but Volvo appear to have struck a chord with the British buyer, as the manufacturer is now ranked as the country’s fastest-growing premium car brand.
