Sweden January 2011: Golf #1, Volvo V60 #3 at 4.3%

Volvo V60

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.

Other strong performers in January include the Mercedes C Class, up to 5th with 555 sales and 2.9% (vs. 1.1% in FY 2010), the BMW 5-Series, #9 at 2.6% and the Kia Sportage at #24.
