Sweden Car Sales By Brand : 1995-99

The Volvo S40 was released in 1995... 

After the virtual collapse of car sales of the early 90's, things then climbed strongly through this period. People are only willing to spend when there is economic confidence and the confidence returned. When things move quickly as they did here when sales rebounded, changes are more pronounced too. Here are a few examples.


Volvo had 28.9% of the market in 1995, but down to 21.7% in 1999. Ford went from 12.2% to 6.5% in '99. VW got to second spot in 1996, up from 5th to 1990. Renault started the decade at 13th and was 5th by the end of it. Škoda shot up in sales very quickly, as did many smaller brands. Both MGR and Land Rover really took off for example.
