New Car Sales Increase
Sales of new cars in Sweden showed a significant increase in January compared to the start of 2009.
Figures were up by 37 % although the organisation, Bil Sweden, said sales were still below a "normal" level and that January 2009 was a weak month at the height of the financial crisis. The most sold car model was the Volvo V70 II.
15 523 new private cars sales were registered last month which is an 37,4 % increase on the same month last year.
