The Volkswagen Golf has spent two months in a row in the first place

registrations in Sweden continue to grow so unstoppable. In August we have signed 27.316 units sold, up a slight 1.6% that is enough to be able to say that sales in this country carry almost three years of uninterrupted growth. The accumulated data of 2016 put on the table 239.104 units sold (+9,2%).

The common dominator of the Swedish market is Volvo without any doubt. So month after month, until it reaches August: in the month of holiday par excellence, the brand scandinavian works half gas and gives up his position of privilege to Volkswagen. This has happened in four of the last five years and, therefore, the victory of the German mark must be understood as something transient. Surely in September we will return to see Volvo at the top.

Since then that Volkswagen has taken advantage of the situation very well monopolizing the podium of the ranking of the models to the full, something that had never happened. The first position is for the Volkswagen Golf, repeating the leadership of July: this is the first time that the Golf wins in Sweden for two consecutive months. The Volkswagen Passat remains in the second square and the Volkswagen Up! surprise everyone with an unexpected third position.

¿Strategy? Have sold more units of the Volkswagen Up! in August than in the previous seven months together

In the fourth place appears the new Volvo S90 in some data also include a version with bodywork family V90 and enrollment of units in stock of the model that replaces the Volvo V70. Sales have dropped a significant 38% compared to August of 2015, which is explained by the decline in the pace of work of the Swedish brand that we have already told and to be a period of transition until the new model settles in the dealers.

funny Fact: SsangYong Tivoli has debuted on this market and with its 12 units in August, has been achieved in a single month to be the best-selling model of the brand. The SsangYong Korando has only added 10 units throughout the year (7 in August) and the SsangYong Rexton has sold 8 units (3 in August).
