Saab small markets sales data – February 2011

If you have the figures from the other “small” markets, please post them here.

Finland

In February Saab sold 44 cars up from 6 in 2011

The YTD value is 97, up from 31 in 2010

Spain

74 cars have been sold in Spain in February 2011.
I don’t have the figures but if my math is right, an increase of 57.4% means that they sold 47 cars in February 2011.

Switzerland

Still to be confirmed when the stats come out, but it’s understood that Swiss sales have come in at 65 units for the month of February.

Will confirm when the official numbers come out, but that’s from chatting with Saab staffers here at the booth.

Saab has sold 53 cars in Switzerland, up from 27 last year.

The YTD values are 88 2011 up from 49 in 2010.

it seems that little by little, all markets are showing a good growth, the trend is right, the numbers I guess will grow ….

I think today’s prototype will also help to restore faith in the future of the brand … bright sunshine ahead

I think that Saab Will sell over 1,200 units a month here in Sweden when Both 9-5sc and 9-3 sub 120 is here..
Im starting to see more and more 9-5 ss in gothenburg at least..

A fast estimate gives us with the figures we have already at hand the following:
In Sweden we are up about 50 %
In world total so far up with about 70 % incl Sweden
In world total so far up with 140 % not incl Sweden

Should be interesting to see where it lands, but these are good figures as we have yet to see how the 9-3 SC Eco TTID and 9-5 SC makes a difference later this year.

Because there can be a delay when every country present the numbers. GB is always about one week into the new month, some others faster, some slower. The Belgium numbers for January 2011 were sold 168 cars for Saab.

Ouch! Only 2 were sold in Canada. Work needs to be done. They can start with a working website, some basic advertising, and leasing will surely help. Also, there are only 2 dealers in the Montreal area, both in terrible locations. This is a city of 4 million with plenty of Saabs on the road. I’m still optimistic things will get better by mid-year but they need to move more quickly.

Kirk, As far as the website goes, I’ve been told it’s about a month out which is good. A website alone doesn’t cut it though. We have what I think is the best website in Canada for the Saab brand at http://www.springmans.com and a twitter page SpringmansSaab as well as a facebook group and there are still struggles with getting people in the door. We have 13 dealers across Canada and well spaced out so pooling together for a country-wide ad campaign is difficult and as stand alone dealers its even more difficult to market the brand alone.

From swedish newspaper SvD about the february sales (my translation).

Jan Åke Jonsson:

-We are increasing (sales) with more than double the market in general and that is from numbers showing vehicle registrations in february which is cars ordered in december and january. In february we’ve seen that the inflow of orders has increased dramatically.

Sounds good don’t you think folks? =)

New Saab car registrations in Norway, February 2011:

Saab 9-3: 46 (19 in Feb 2010)
Saab 9-5: 12 (4 in Feb 2010)

Total: 58 (23 in Feb 2010)

In other words an increase of 152 per cent compared to February 2010.

I have also gotten word that there have been many new Saabs ordered during February. Those sales will probably be present the April/May statistics.

BELGIUM SALES DATE for FEB/2011

FEB 2011 = 86 – (64 in Feb 2010)

YTD = 254 – (179 in 2010)

Normally March will be a better month for Saab in Belgium, as then the cars will be deliverd which were bought during the Brussels Autoshow

Looks like many markets are growing nicely! Good stuff!

I see that some markets are not developing as one could hope for. Any ideas to why France is not looking better? Portugal is also a disappointment. Canada looks like they also need a major push.

Sales data for Germany (preliminary):

Feb 11: 59
Feb 10: 51 (+15,7%)

Jan 11: 78
Jan 10: 40

2011 YTD: 137
2010 YTD: 91 (+50,5%)
Market is up by 15,81%

Saab sales are slightly up, but in the biggest market in Europe, Saab should perform much better. 10 Years ago, they managed up to 1.000 sales a month. I hope, with the new managing director, Saab can reconstruct their dealer network in Germany.

Thanks for the numbers. It will be really interesting to follow how Saab sales develop during the year. As you said, prior it was a VERY important market, and it still is.
