Saab saw its sales fly away again in July 2005 to record-ever levels, as the Swedish premium brand continued on its seemingly-unstoppable growth curve! A monthly sales total of over 2,000 units translated into a year-on-year growth of 40 per cent for Saab Great Britain in July, in a month when overall new car sales in the UK declined by 6.6 per cent compared to the previous year. For the first seven months of this year, Saab has achieved a 41% sales growth when compared to 2004, selling more than 16,000 units.
Jonathan Nash, Managing Director of Saab Great Britain remarks: "The fact that our growth so far in 2005 has come from every single model across the Saab range is particularly encouraging. With the impending arrival of the important new 9-3 SportWagon and the 2.8 V6 9-3 Aero models, which will be the fastest road-going Saabs ever built, we are confident that 2005 will be a year to remember for Saab in the UK!"Published 5 August 2005
