Sweden vehicle market in 2015 at new all time record slamming a double digit increase over the previous record. While Volvo and Volkswagen led sales, Nissan was the star of the year

Economic Outlook

Sweden’s economy has had a pretty good year in 2015, with consumers and homeowners in particular feeling a boost. Low energy prices have left more money in consumers’ pockets for increased spending and homeowners have enjoyed significant gains in property values.

Furthermore, in an effort to combat persistently low inflation, the Central Bank has resorted to negative interest rates and quantitative easing, which has kept business rates low and propelled economic activity throughout the year.

Although recent inflation data suggest the trend of falling consumer prices may be coming to an end, the easy monetary policy stance will likely continue to ensure prices do not relapse and continue to boost growth.

Market Outlook

Following a great momentum started during the 2014 and prolonged for the entire 2015, the Swedish Auto Market celebrates a new all time record with a double-digit increase from the previous record established in the 2007.
