Swedish Saab sales data – April 2009

Time to do the sales updates we missed due to the public holiday in Europe last weekend.
Saab sales are in a rather sorry state, as you know, and the news out of Sweden for April is no exception.
Saab 9-3
There were just 384 Saab 9-3s sold in April, which was down by 67% from the 1,175 sold the year before.
The Saab 9-3 is #5 on the Swedish sales charts for 2009.
Saab 9-5
The Saab 9-5 is now #12 on the Swedish sales list. In previous years, it has always been #4.
There were 235 Saab 9-5s sold in Sweden in April, which is 59% down on the 575 sold in the same month last year.
It should be mentioned that of the cars in the Top 10, only the new Volvo V70 and the Volkswagen Passat enjoyed either static sales levels or real sales growth. Every other car in the top 10 is suffering significant double-digit shrinkage.
