Good news for Swedish sales too. Saab still has some way to go to catch Volvo’s V70 and V50, which came in at 1 and 2 for February, but growth continues in the Swedish market. Saab models come in at 3 and 4 on the list.
Saab sold 1,722 units in Sweden in February 2006, a rise of 358 units (26%) over February 2005. The sales were broken down as follows:
9-3: 882 units sold (506 in 2005)
9-5: 840 units sold (858 in 2005)
As you can see, the 9-5 was basically steady and the big rise is solely attributable to sales growth in the 9-3 (perhaps this is the SportCombi effect that I expected to see in the US).
Thanks to Hakan for the info, available here (pdf) and congratulations also to Saab of Sweden.
