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 percent although the industry organisation, Bil Sweden, said sales were still below a "normal" level and that January 2009 was a particularly weak month with the financial crisis in full swing.

15 523 new private cars sales were registered last month which is an 37,4 % increase on the same month last year.
