The company is still fulfilling existing demand and going into 2023 with a healthy list of orders.

Despite this, the demand for Volvo cars remained steadfast with the sales of the overall Recharge lineup with Pure Electric and Plug-in hybrid powertrains reaching 43.8% in December 2022 where its fully electric cars accounted for 20.1% of global sales for the same month.
