Yes this is it! Final 2012 sales figures have now started to trickle down and this year you are in for an extra treat! On top of the traditional monthly articles I will also create a Full Year 2012 post for most countries updated monthly on BSCB. Sweden is the first cab off the rank, with new car sales encouragingly up 5% year-on-year in December to 26,687 registrations. Volvo has an outstanding month: the V70 sells 2,558 units for a 9.6% market share, its strongest since December 2010, while the S/V60 ranks #2 with 2,244 sales and 8.4%, the nameplate’s highest share ever, beating the 6.9% the V60 hit in November 2011.

The Ford Focus also shines, up 3 spots on November to #5 at 907 units and 3.4%. A disappointing showing for the Volvo V40 however, down 2 ranks and one full percentage point on last month to #9 with 532 sales and 2%. Within the Top 20, great performers also include the Toyota Avensis up 12 spots to #14, the Peugeot 508 up 2 to #16, Hyundai i20 up 18 to #36 and the Opel Astra is up 16 to #19.

Further down, notice the Hyundai i40 up 29 ranks to #23 and 4 models reappearing in the Top 50 this month: the Chevrolet Cruze at #26, the Mercedes A-Class at #34, Hyundai Santa Fe at #43 and the Mitsubishi Outlander at #48.
