Thanks to Vector 220, via SaabCentral, there’s news of yet another Saab sales rise in the UK. I haven’t seen anything on GM Media about it yet (they’re notoriously slow for UK sales figures), so we’ll run with this.
In short, Saab posted yet another double-digit gain in a month where there was a double-digit fall in total volume sold.
Saab sold 1,771 vehicles in the UK during October 2005, compared with 1,562 in October 2004. That’s a 13.38% sales rise in a month where sales overall were down 10.75%. Interestingly, the UK sales also rank above US sales for October, which came in at 1,340 units – mainly due to inventory problems.
Saab have now sold 23,596 vehicles in the UK during 2005, a 38% rise for the same period in 2004. Sensational. It’s little wonder Saab are building up a rep as one of the cooler brands in Britain.
