Car sales are on the up in Sweden: +3% in 2006 at 282,766 registrations and +8% in 2007 at 306,799. The Volvo V70 is king again at 10.4% in 2006 and logically drops to 7.3% in 2007 with the arrival of its replacement, whose sales are counted separately for the first time (the Volvo V70 II sells 9,203 units in 2007 at #7).

The Saab 9-5 reclaims its 2nd spot in 2006 thanks to the new generation with 14,494 sales and 5.1%. It is 4th in 2007, when its little sister the Saab 9-3 reaches its best ever position in Sweden at #2 (+2 spots over 2006) with 14,185 sales and 4.6%. The Volvo V50 is stable at #3 both years. The VW Golf is the best selling foreign model for the 3rd year in a row in 2006, and is then passed by the VW Passat the following year. Both rank 5th.
