Sales data for the US market is in for March 2007 and once again the downward trend for Saab continues.
SaabUSA sold 2,837 vehicles during March, a fall of 15.5% from the 3,239 vehicles sold in the same month last year.
Individual model sales were as follows:
Saab 9-2x – sold 20 vehicles, down from 91 sold in March 06
Saab 9-3 – sold 1,981 vehicles, down from 2,255 sold in March 06
Saab 9-5 – sold 369 vehicles, down from 411 sold in March 06
Saab 9-7x – sold 467 vehicles, down from 482 sold in March 06
That MY08 9-3 can’t come soon enough.
9-7x sales are still encouraging. Whils tthey were down this month, a fall of 15 vehicles on a base of 482 can be regarded as being ‘steady’.
The 9-5 remains one of the bigger sleepers in autodom in my book. Yes, it needs a refresh, but mainly to get it back on the motoring press’ radar. The car itself is still superb.
Saab have sold 7,420 vehicles in the US market so far in 2007. This represents a 9.8% fall against sales for Jan-Mar 2006, where they sold 8,222 units.
