The Swedish market finishes a formidable year on a high: +53% in December, and +36% for the full year at 289,477 sales. The Volvo V70 is at stratospheric heights this month with 15.7%, and 8.8% (25,568 sales) over the full year, exactly double the sales of the VW Golf in #2.
However the performance of the month should go to the Volvo V60: it jumps to the 3rd place for its second month of sales with 926 units and 3.1%, establishing itself as a force to be counted with in 2011. Another solid month for the Saab 9-3 in 4th with 3%, whereas the V50 stays in 5th (2.8%), meaning that Volvo places its 3 station wagons in the Top 5 this month!
