So far, 2007 is shaping up as a decent year for Saab here in Australia.
Saab sold 100 vehicles here in Australia during April, a slight rise on the 96 vehicles sold in the same month last year.
So far in 2007, Saab Oz have sold 624 vehicles, a 15% increase over the 541 sold from January to April last year. That increase in the year-to-date figure is mostly due to a big increase in March, when the new Diesel model was promoted heavily with a $3,000 fuel incentive.
In the months to come, Saab have some big monthly figures to attain as they embark on their traditional Midsommar sales promotion. This will provide the real litmus test to see if they’re going to get that 2,000 – 2,200 figure that I’m quite sure is pinned on a notice board there at Saab HQ in Melbourne.
Congratulations, Saab Oz!!
