The VW Passat hits its highest Swedish ranking since August 2018.
New car sales in Sweden manage a fourth consecutive double-digit year-on-year gain in November at +18.2% to 30.502 registrations, benefitting from weak post-WLTP year-ago volumes and just as dealerships are filling up on 2019-registered models in the wake of a new, more stringent bonus/malus pricing come January 1. The year-to-dat tally however remains in negative at -6.9% to 307.907. Volvo (+10%) trails the market growth quite significantly and only holds onto the brands top spot for 74 sales, threatened by a reinvigorated Volkswagen (+65.7%) while Toyota (+27.7%) advances past Kia (+6.3%). Audi (+100.6%) and Peugeot (+24.3%) also outpace the market in the remainder of the Top 10. Model-wise, the Volvo S/V60 (+68.8%) easily holds onto the top spot with the VW Passat (+175.4%) and Tiguan (+414.8%) making a very vigorous comeback onto the podium, the Passat snapping its highest ranking in Sweden since August 2018 thanks to its facelift. The Volvo S/V90 (-29.6%) continues to suffer from the arrival of the new, cheaper S/V60 but climbs back up two spots on October to #4. Below the Volvo XC40 (+26.7%) and Kia Niro (+23.2%) both beating the market, the VW T-Cross returns to the Top 10 at #9 and the Toyota Corolla remains at #10.
