NEW CAR SALES DOWN IN SWEDEN

Florida Automotive Journal
December 1970


The sales of new cars in Sweden during the first three quarters of 1970 totalled 145,230 units, down 9 per cent on the same period last year, according to preliminary figures released by the Association of Car Manufacturers.

However, sales during September this year rose by 3,257 units to a total of 17,330 and is the first indication of any pick-up in that is a depressed market following the raising of the value added tax on cars—from 11 to 16 per cent—in February this year.

Although most makes showed varying declines in sales, British Leyland held its position at 3,729 units during the January - September period compared with 3,699 units in the same period in 1969.

Volvo was down while Saab showed an upward trend, these two makes together accounting for about 43 per cent of sales.  General Motors and Volkswagen dropped about 4,000 each to 17,637 and 14,065 units respectively.
