From Saab Sweden……
“The last two quarters have shown interest in the brand and our products is strong. However, we recognize that we have many steps left to take and will continue to work hard to bring Saab back to what it should be on the domestic market. During the year we launched the critically acclaimed cars as the new Saab 9-5, and 9-3 TTiD which despite their low emissions of 119g / CO 2 is available with an output of 180 horsepower. We’ve also got a brand new Saab Sweden-organization in place. ”
“The coming year is the first normal year of Saab experience since 2007 which in itself is pleasurable. In 2011, we have several exciting new features including, for the Swedish market important, the Saab 9-5 Sport Combi. But that does not make it a bed of roses but it is still hard and systematic work from Saab Sweden and our dealers will apply. After the seasonally challenging first few months of the new year we will continue to build. A wider product range is launched then gradually and sales should be stronger to our past but also the new Saab Customers. “
I believe Red J might be getting some more in-depth analysis together.
Congratulations to Saab Sweden on another great month and a strong finish to 2010.
