Car Sales Finland: 2010



It looked for all money that VW was going to take top spot off Toyota, as it has dome in other Euro nations. However, a late rally by the Japanese giant saved the day, notably the Auris model. I assume the hybrid version in particular was very popular as such cars are in Scandinavia. Nissan, Opel and Kia all had a good year in the land of a thousand lakes. Honda had a shocker as it has been in Europe, falling 6 places in the rankings in Finland. Overall sales were up a healthy 24%, but still well down on preceding years.

In the chart below, italicised figures at the end of each line indicates a drop in market share. Now for the top 20:

  1. Most people are aware of the practical benefits of car alarms and car starters, while the concept of upgradedhid headlights remains unfamiliar. However, an increasingly popular trend among in-the-know vehicle owners has been installing alternative types of headlights to suit different visibility, safety, and energy-efficiency preferences.
