* See the Top 6 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to Rene *
In 1965 the Volvo Amazon dominates the Swedish models ranking with a very imposing 15.4% market share, leading the way above the VW 1200/1300 (aka Beetle) at 11.3%.
Note 1965 is the first year official car sales in Sweden show a Volvo in the lead. The reign of the Amazon may have started earlier but I don’t have any official data yet to confirm it. If you do please comment on this article!
The legendary Saab 96 rounds up the podium with 7.8% share ahead of the Opel Rekord, the Ford Taunus 17 M and the Opel Kadett.
