Last year most new Electrolux freezers were released in June, with four new Electrolux freezers released that month. Six new Electrolux freezers were released in June 2016 making it the biggest month that year as well for new Electrolux freezer releases. April was the biggest month in 2015 for new Electrolux freezers, with 11 new Electrolux freezers released that month.
