The Swedish car market is off to a great start in 2011, with January figures up 24%. Surprise on top: the VW Golf is #1 for the 2nd time in 6 months at 1,074 sales and 5.6%, whereas the Volvo V70 compensate for its extravagantly high December figure with only 876 sales and 4.6%.
In 3rd, the Volvo V60 keeps progressing, from 3.1% in December to 4.3% this month. Could the V60 interrupt the 14 year-long reign of the Volvo V70 over the Swedish market? The answer will lie in the next few months’ figures. January 2011 Top 30 and more commentaries below.
