By the way, I heard from Saab USA this morning and they’re expecting a number around the 3,500 mark for July, which will be way down on 2005 (as expected) but still their biggest month of the year so far.

  1. And 921 of those 9-5 were BioPower cars.
    The second best competitor: Volvo V50 with 312 flexifuel cars.
    Saab out sell the lot with approximate 30% market share of the environmental cars sold in Sweden.

  2. My guesstimation is that the 9-3 SC should be credited a big part of the 9-3 increase in Sweden since most familes here buy a wagon of some sort.
    I blaim GM for delaying the launch of the 9-3SC, imagine if it had come out a year or at least 6 months before the V50….

  3. Many that initially bought 9-3 will never buy Saab again, I see it as lucky that combi came so late. This way Saab didnt loose so much people forever.

  4. autoblog.com has the USA figures. Unfortunately they don’t reflect Sweden: Saab is the biggest month on month loser, sales down -41.2% 🙁
