British sales data has been released and it seems to have been a good finish to the year for Saab in the old country.
December registrations came in at 742 vehicles, which is 140% above the 309 vehicle sold last year.
Interestingly, the December performance for Lexus was 216 cars (down 13%) and Jaguar registered 1,070 which was 29% down on last Decembers 1,508.
Total Saab registrations in 2010 were 5,890 – a drop of 21% on the 7486 achieved in 2009.
A few other notes…..
This was the best December market share performance since 2007 at 0.6%.
Saab’s retail market share has grown steadily throughout the final quarter of 2010:
- 0.29% for October
- 0.39 for November, and
- 0.6% for December
I believe the target they’re aspiring to at the moment is a 1% market share.
Congratulations to Saab GB and their dealers. Keep in growing!
