We’re still in the up-and-down phase of re-start and combined with the breaks that take place in Sweden over the summer, I’m a little unsure as to what to make of these numbers.
Bottom line: Saab sales month-to-month are trending downwards in Sweden at the moment. Total sales in the Swedish market over the last three months are as follows:
June – 839
July – 801
August – 528
You don’t need me to bring out some charts and graphs to see where that’s going.
I don’t know what’s going on – whether it’s just the summer slowdown or some extra difficulty in getting things to resonate with the Swedish buying public, but observing the ongoing trend at the end of September will be quite interesting.
There were 362 units of the Saab 9-3 delivered in August, which was up from the 285 delivered at the same time last year. It’s down from 458 last month, however.
There were 166 deliveries of the Saab 9-5 in August. That up from just 90 delivered in the same month last year, but down from 343 deliveries last month.
