If your country’s data comes out and isn’t listed here, please post it to comments and I’ll add it to the main body of the entry.
Canadian sales figures for June 2007 are in and it was a good month there, to go along with a steady year so far.
Saab Canada sold 298 vehicles, vs prior year figures of 286. Up 4.2%.
Total sales YTD are 1,223, compared to 1,220 for the same period in 2006.
The total Canadian market was up 7.6%
Thanks cj and Zippy!
Once Saab’s fourth biggest market, Germany is now spiralling downward. Hopefully the 2008 Saab 9-3 will have a real impact here. Germany could be the ultimate barometer, actually.
364 units were sold in June 2007, which is down by 60.5% from June 2006.
The total for 2007 so far is down by 34%.
The whole German market was down by 7% in June and 9% in 2007.
Dutch sales data for June is in and it’s a case of more bad sales news, unfortunately. This follows on from many markets that have been on a downward trend this year. Dutch sales data is as follows:
348 units sold in June 2007. (June 2006: 381)
1,977 units sold from January to June 2007 (in 2006: 2,454)
On the Dutch market as a whole, 52,501 cars were sold this June (294,953 for the first six months), while 48,652 cars were sold in June of 2006 (286,998 for the first six months). So, Saab’s sales seem to go against the current trend in our market.
Finland’s sales figures for June 2006 are in:
June 2007: 169 (market share 1,43%)
June 2006: 149 (market share 0,99%)
01-06/2007: 923 (market share 1,19%)
01-06/2006: 1022 (market share 1,18%)
Whole car market sales are down -10,3%
Belgium’s sales figures are in for June 2006. A country I’ve not reported on before.
It seems like they’re struggling there in 2007:
There were 299 units sold in June 2007 (compared to June 2006 : 360 sold)
Total for the first 6 months: 1889 (compared to 2006 : 2639units)
My wife was born in Belgium.
Australian sales figures for June are in, and it was a great month for Saab here in Australia. the “Air Born” campaign was a great incentive and it obviously worked well.
Saab Australia sold 336 vehicles in June 2007, a 19.6% rise compared to 281 in the same month last year (which, incidentally, was Saab’s biggest month in 2006).
Saab Oz have sold 1,148 vehicles in the first six months of 2007, up 17.4% on the 978 sold for the same period in 2006.
Target: 2,000 vehicles.
Aussies reading this (and anyone else interested), the CarsGuide review of the Saab 9-3 that I referred to on the weekend is now online.
So all you
Belgians, Canadians, Aussies, Germans, Spaniards and yes, even you Maltese should let us all know how things have gone in your neck of the woods. Any market other than the big three – post your numbers here.
