Sales data for Sweden is IN and it’s been a month worth talking about!
Total Saab sales were up 106% on September last year. Total sales for the month were 1,022 cars compared to just 496 in the same month last year.
Total sales for the year so far stand at 5,538, which has finally overtaken the same year-to-date figure from Jan-Sep last year (5,449). Saab are now 1.63% ahead on 2009 and when you consider that the Saab plant was idle for virtually the first three and a half months of this year, that’s a great achievement.
There were 801 vehicles from the Saab 9-3 range sold in September, up 153% from the 310 sold in the same month last year.
Saab 9-3 sales are now tracking 12% higher in 2010 than what they were in 2009.
Saab 9-5 sales are still ramping up slowly, with 221 vehicles sold in September. That’s a more modest 19% rise against the 186 vehicles sold in the same month last year.
Saab 9-5 sales for the year to date are still 17% below the number for the same period last year, but gaining month by month as stocks of the new Saab 9-5 rise.
This is a great result for Saab Sweden and the introduction of new low emissions engines in the Saab 9-3, combined with the rollout of the new Saab 9-5, can only mean better things for the future.
Congratulations to the guys and ladies at Saab Sweden.
