* Many thanks to Torbjörn for making these updates possible! *
I am now able to share with you detailed data for Sweden between 1978 and 1995 with at least a Top 20 models ranking for most years during the period!
Witness the decade-long reign of the Volvo 200, peaking at 21.6% share in 1981 and then passing the relay to the Volvo 700 in 1985 when it reached it best share at 14%. The Volvo 900 then took the lead in 1991 before being passed by the Volvo 850 in 1993 on its way to 14.4% share in 1995.
Meanwhile the Saab 900, launched in 1978, finished on the podium most years up to 1994, peaking at 10.3% share in 1981, while the Saab 9000 was a regular favourite in the nineties, ranking #2 from 1990 to 1992.
You can also access general information on the best-selling models in Sweden from 1957 to 1977 and a yearly Top 30 models ranking from 1996 onwards. Witness the success of the Volvo Amazon, 140 Series, V50 and V70, and the Saab 96, 99, 9-3 and 9-5.
