As usual the first cab off the rank for monthly updates is Sweden and the news are not good: down 19% year-on-year to 23,336 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 91,312 units, down 7%. The top of the ranking is extraordinarily stable: the Top 5 best-selling models are unchanged since January and naturally come in the same order in the 2012 year-to-date ranking!

The Volvo V70 leads the way with 1,744 sales and 7.5% share, taking its distance on the VW Passat, #2 at 1,332 units and 5.7% while the Volvo V60 rounds up the podium with 975 sales and 4.2%. The VW Golf and Volvo V50 follow at 3.5% and 2.7% respectively. The Kia Cee’d is up 3 spots on March to its traditional 6th place with 559 units and 2.4%, it is also #6 year-to-date in 2012 and was #6 over the Full Year 2011…

The Volvo XC60 is up 10 ranks to #7, the Renault Master has a freak month at #8 with 491 sales (but this may be LCV sales inadvertently accounted for here) while the Peugeot 508 breaks into the monthly Swedish Top 10 for the first time at #10 with 429 units and 1.8%. Other great performers this month include the Peugeot 308 up 14 spots on last month to #15, the Kia Rio up 10 ranks to #31 and the Honda Civic up to #36.

Previous month: Sweden March 2012: Volvo v70, V60 and VW Passat sovereign
