Total deliveries of trucks from the Volvo Group’s three truck companies increased 3% through November this year, compared with the year-earlier period. Deliveries from Mack rose 2%, Renault Trucks 7% and Volvo Trucks 1%.
Deliveries from Mack through November totalled 34,135 units. The pace of Mack's deliveries has slowed from earlier in the year, due to challenges stemming from its product renewal efforts, as well as long lead times in production at truck body companies and some softening in the residential construction market.
Deliveries for Renault through November totalled 71,457 trucks. Deliveries in Europe increased by 10%. In the rest of the world the deliveries continued to increase. However, reduced deliveries to the Middle East held back the total number of deliveries. Excluding the Middle East, the deliveries of trucks improved by 12%. The top models were the Renault Premium (+24%) and the Renault Mascott (+22%).
Volvo Trucks’ deliveries during the period January-November amounted to 95,458 vehicles. In Eastern Europe, the positive development continued, and deliveries increased by 42%, primarily in Russia and Poland. On the Russian market, the number of deliveries totalled 1,944 vehicles (1,071), which is an increase of 82%. There was also a 54% increase in Poland, where the number of delivered trucks was 1,918. In North America, deliveries continued to rise. The number of delivered vehicles totalled 34,050, an increase of 15%.
