Walking down my street, the parked car parade goes something like this: Volvo, Peugeot, Saab, Volvo, VW, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, Volvo, Saab, VW, Jaguar, Peugeot, Volvo, Saab. It’s easy to see that Swedish car loyalties still belong with the Volvo, even though the company is actually owned by Ford. But there is a general perception that the company is still Swedish owned. So it is obviously the quality car to own. Some months back, I saw a great “man on the street” newspaper interview where Swedes were given a list of companies and asked to name which were Swedish owned. Everyone overwhelmingly said that Saab and Volvo were Swedish. At the time, neither company was Swedish owned. But just this month, Swedish car maker Koenigsegg bought Saaab so that that company is back home again. I am somehow sure there was a general Swedish sigh of relief at the sale.
