Did GM have a sales rise in June?
Who cares about the whole company? This is a Saab site, so how did our little Swedish/Japanesish/Americanish car company go? (And yes, it felt wierd to write that)
Well, based on sales days in June 2005 vs June 2004, Saab recorded a mere 57% sales rise!!!!
That’s 6,614 units this year compared to 4,045 unit in June last year. In the 6 months to June 2004, there’s been 20,968 Saabs sold in the US vs 19,430 being sold Jan-June 2004.
There were 1,999 9-2x’s sold for the month, almost double what was sold in May (which was a record month itself). Perhaps the surprise is that there were 3,608 9-3’s sold during the month – I’d have thought the 9-2x would have been the runaway volume winner due to the rebates.
The 9-5 sold a mere 691 units and the 9-7x, hampered by invoicing and delivery problems, managed to book up a mere 316 units.
Here’s hoping GM extend the discount period as rumoured and give the 9-7x a better chance.
