Norway Car of the Year 2009 update

I posted an article a few weeks ago about the Norwegian 2009 Car of the Year poll being run by the Dagbladet news website.
At the time, the 10 nominated vehicles had received the following votes:

  1. Audi A5 Sportback (1285)
  2. Mercedes E-Klasse (424)
  3. Toyota Prius ( 373)
  4. Mazda 3 (373)
  5. Skoda Yeti ( 354)
  6. Saab 9-3X (348)
  7. Opel Insignia (343)
  8. BMW X1 ( 323)
  9. Peugeot 3008 (275)
  10. VW Polo ( 204)

Obviously this is a situation that needed immediate action :-). Being beaten out by a Skoda was bad enough, but a Prius?
I received an update via email the other day, and the votes now stand as follows:

  1. Audi A5 Sportback (1982)
  2. Saab 9-3X (1504)
  3. Opel Insignia (829)
  4. Toyota Prius (637)
  5. Mercedes E-Klasse (588)
  6. Mazda3 ( 459)
  7. Skoda Yeti (444)
  8. BMW X1 (417)
  9. Peugeot 3008 (408)
  10. VW Polo (257)

That’s a much better looking table, with a respectable sencond place all but cemented for the Saab 9-3x.
Apparently voting is still open so if you haven’t had your say, you can still do so at the Dagbladet website.
(I assume that) Saab thanks you, Bard Eker thanks you (he’s Norwegian, you know) and I know that I thank you as well.
