Sweden Best selling cars

Sweden Best selling cars in 2018 has a new leader, the Volvo V/S90 which gained a huge advantage on all followers. Huge steps ahead scored by the Nissan Qashqai and the Kia Niro – up 60% – joining the Top10.

The 2018 ended with 353.647 sales – down 6.7% – and the outlook for the 2019 is negative.

A key propellent of sales acceleration is the national automotive plan, focus on alternative vehicles to fuel, with green incentives which are supporting the development of growing Electric/Hybrid vehicles segment. However, this plan moved the Swedish government to introduce a new fiscal system for the automotive industry, called bonus/malus, which was introduced in July 2018, aiming to have incentives for low emission vehicles paid by purchasers of high emission cars.

While before the new system introduction the market accelerated ending the first half at the highest level ever and a June record with sales pull ahead to anticipate new fiscal effects, since July the market started declining. At this local revolution it was added the WLTP introduction on the 1st of September.
