First quarter 2023
“During Q1 2023, the Volvo Group's growth continued and our profitability took a step up. Sales increased in all business areas and in all regions. Net sales rose by 25% to SEK 131.4 billion, the highest so far for a first quarter. We increased the adjusted operating income by SEK 5.7 billion to SEK 18.4 billion, corresponding to a margin of 14.0% (12.0).
Return on capital employed rose to 30.3% (25.3). A good profitability is important for us to be able to continue to increase our investments in the biggest technological shift ever in our industries. We are in a period when we are investing battery and fuel cell electric vehicles as well as internal combustion engines in parallel,” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO.
