Currently reading: Volvo launches UK's first online approved used car sales platform
Company edges closer to all-digital retail operations with launch of new Selekt Direct service

Volvo says it has "taken a motoring industry lead" by launching a new online sales platform for approved used cars – the UK's first such programme from a manufacturer. 

The new service, called Volvo Cars Selekt Direct, offers a full end-to-end buying service for pre-owned vehicles, which has been designed "for ease, speed and pricing transparency". 

It's the latest step in Volvo's ambitious strategy to ramp up its online sales operations. By 2025, the Swedish company wants most of its UK sales to come from online, and it expects that by 2030, all new Volvo cars will be sold digitally.

It has already committed to selling electric cars exclusively through its online channels, rather than at conventional dealerships.
