Swedish Saab sales data – August 2009

Sales data is out for the Swedish market and yes, the numbers are low.
We know how they’ll compare to last year, but perhaps the more pertinent question is how will they compare to last month? Well, in those terms, there’s finally some good news to report.
Saab 9-3
Saab sold 285 units of the Saab 9-3 in August 2009. Whilst that’s a fall of some 55% from the 630 units sold in August last year, that fall is much lower than the almost 70% falls they’ve been seeing in previous months.
In fact, Saab sold 30 more 9-3s in August than they did the month before.
Small steps, but important ones.

Saab 9-5
This trend did not occur for the Saab 9-5, where they sold 90 units of the ageing Saab in August compared with 136 in July.
The August figure is around 76% down on sales from the same month last year (383 sold in 2008)
——
41 of the 9-3s sold were diesel
16 of the 9-5s sold were diesel
208 of the 9-3s sold were BioPower
73 of the 9-5s sold were BioPower
