The generation out of the Volvo XC60 is still sold in Sweden as well as XC60 Classic

they had Never before sold so many cars in a month of may in the Norwegian market. The 35.326 units sold (+2.5 per cent) represent a new milestone and makes it clear that the industry of the nordic countries is better than ever. The annual accumulated totals 155.206 units, 2.6% more than the previous year. If everything goes well, 2017 will be a new sales record in this market.

For the second consecutive month, the Volvo XC60 is done with the first position in the ranking of models. Surprising, because it is something that has only happened three times (the occasion remaining as it was in December of 2016). This is the last unit of the current SUV’s Swedish, that the brand is offering with interesting discounts (around € 5,000 rebate), since in a short time you will reach the new generation.

The ride of the XC60 to the first position causes the Volvo S90 and his family version V90 will have to make do with second place. Away from these two models is the Volkswagen Golf, which has seen its sales down in Sweden, an important 34% in comparison with may 2016.

The renewed Renault Capture is having a good reception

Fiat Ducato remains in the Top 10 as usual for these dates: face-to summer its sales soar because it is used as a basis for a motorhome. Both the Renault Clio (11) as the Renault Capture (13th) managed to finish a lot higher up than usual. In fact, the crossover galo has improved in 26 positions its output in April.

as for the manufacturers, it is no surprise that Volvo the first square with convenience while Volkswagen is left with the second step of the classification. We noted the poor performance of Audi (-9%), which last year was the third best-selling brand and now only remains in the seventh place. On the opposite side shines Renault, which increases demand a magnificent 50%.
