Sweden's best-selling car 'not a Volvo'

Instead the Volkswagen Golf topped sales, although Volvo still had the largest share of the country's car market overall. The Golf made up 5.9% of new cars bought in the country, while Volvo's V70, S90 and V90 took 5.7% together. Volvo was last knocked off top spot in 1962 by a Volkswagen Beetle. Volvo' still sells the most cars in Sweden, with more than one in five cars (21.5%) on the country's roads, compared with Volkswagen's 15.7%. Sweden is Volvo's second-biggest market behind China.
