EDMONTON, ALTA. – Winning awards repeatedly is difficult, but Volvo of Edmonton has managed it for seven years in a row.

Since starting its winning streak in 2010, the south Edmonton store has won the President’s award every year.

“We would like to recognize Volvo of Edmonton for being our #1 new vehicle sales and #1 CSI service retailer in Canada for 2016,” said Alex Lvovich, managing director of Volvo Car Canada Limited.

“2016 was an outstanding year for Volvo Canada and our retailers.”

In addition to the Volvo awards, the dealership in the south end of Edmonton also won the 2014 Motor Dealers Association of Alberta dealer of excellence award and the 2015 Canadian Automobile Dealers Association Laureate award.

Mike Norris, dealer principal of Volvo of Edmonton, said it was “humbling” to win the awards.

In 2016, the dealership sold more than 800 vehicles, including 404 new ones.

“The future looks very positive for Volvo,” Norris said.
