At +17% in February, Swedish car sales continue their great run and this month Volvo manages to place 3 models (all station wagons) in the Top 4! The Volvo V70 reclaims its #1 spot (revised figures show it was also #1 in January and not the Golf as originally stated) but with a much lower market share than usual (6.3%).
The Volvo V50 jumps up 5 spots to land #2 with 960 sales (4.6%) and the Volvo V60 slows down already (has it found its long-term level yet?) at 730 sales and 3.5%. The VW Golf is #3 at 4.3% and #2 over the first 2 months of 2011 at 4.9%. A podium 100% Volvo at the end of 2011 is a strong possibility! This hasn’t happened since 1997…
Notice also the Saab 9-3 up 9 spots on January at #6 and the Volvo XC60 strong at #8, making it 4 Volvos in the Top 8. The Nissan Qashqai is up to #13.
