In 2011 the lights went out in the Stallbacka, the youngest Saab cars are already 10 years old. In Sweden, however, the brand remains in the top 10, while in other countries it is becoming more and more invisible. But Sweden is the home of the brand, and the vehicles remain popular among private customers, as current statistics show.
As a rule, Saab has long ceased to be an issue for specialist retailers. Only companies that have specialized in the brand deal with classics and youngtimers from Trollhättan. For everyone else, age and risk of warranty put a stop to it.
But the brand remains popular with Swedish private customers, two models are even on the top 10 list, according to current statistics from the platform Blocket.se from November 2021 shows.
The Volvo V1 ranks first among the most popular vehicles among private customers. It is followed by the VW Golf, the BMW 70 Series and the VW Passat. The Saab 3-5 ranks number 9 among the best-selling vehicles. Even before the Audi A3 and the BMW 4 Series.
The Saab 9-5 is ranked 8th among the most popular used cars, followed by the next Volvo with the V50. The Renault Clio ranks 10th in the top 10 list. However, one should not indulge in any illusion. Most of the Saabs that are traded in Sweden are cheap used cars. And even if the brand's esteem has steadily increased in recent years, very few enjoy lover status.
For the reasons mentioned above, the brand no longer plays a role for commercial sellers. In the commercial trade, the VW Golf leads the ranking of vehicles sold on blocket.se. Otherwise, however, Volvo dominates and shows who exercises domiciliary rights in Sweden.
