UPDATED: Australia and France added.
Forgive me if I’ve missed your market, but I would like to keep track of the total market allocations so please send your market allocations in again if you know it.
Hot off the press comes news of some of the bigger market allocations for the Saab Turbo X.
I know many of you have been wondering about this so that you can figure whether or not you need to rush in and slap your cash on the counter.
There’s only a few countries on this list, but the rule of thumb to work by here is that if your country isn’t mentioned then you’re getting less than 50 – UPDATE – now counting all markets as they become known.
US – 600 units
UK – 500 units
SWEDEN – 175 units
CANADA – 125
SWITZERLAND – 120
GERMANY – 90
AUSTRALIA – 30
FRANCE – 50
A couple of surprises there. I guess Switzerland get the number they do thanks to Hirsch.
The difference between the allocations to Sweden and the UK is also surprising. I’d have thought they’d be a little more even.
Finally, there’s no big allocation for Spain. Being in Saab’s top four markets hasn’t helped them secure a bigger slice of the Turbo X pie, but then again I think Spain’s growth has come almost totally from diesel, so maybe it’s not that much of a surprise.
So there you have it. I’m not sure when order books will open, but at least you’ve got an idea of the competition you’ll be facing.
