The Swedish car market is very dynamic this year, at +21% in October and +34% over 10 months 2010 compared to 2009.
The Volvo V70 once again reaches very high scores at a fantastic 9% market share, well ahead of the VW Passat, still strong at 4.9%, and the VW Golf at a solid 4.2%. The Volvo V50 drops below 3%, possibly due to the imminent arrival of the all-new V60 (slowly getting into gear this month at 121 sales).
The new Volvo S60 achieves the best performance of the month, gaining 12 spots to break into the Top 10 in 8th with 556 sales and a very satisfying 2.1% market share. With the XC60 also delivering excellent results in 7th and 2.2% of the market, Volvo places no less than 4 models in the Top 10 this month!
