Chinese-owned Volvo Car Group announced a return to profits on Wednesday in an upbeat half-yearly report that cited "solid" demand for the Swedish brand particularly in China.

Net profits was 535 million kronor in the first six months of the year compared to a 778 million kronor loss for the same period in 2013.
Sales in vehicle terms grew by 9.5 percent year on year to 229,013 units, compared to 209,117 for the same period in the previous year. --AFP
