Björn Envall played an important role, specifically toward the final stages of design when Sason was not healthy and less energy to devote to the project.

Björn Envall’s most notable achievement under his role as chief designer with Saab, was the transition of the 99 Saab 900 (1979-1993/94) to the 900 model that was introduced in 1979.

Envall was responsible for the 98 Prototype, 99, 90, 900, 9000, EV-1 concept car, and a secret “EV-2″ internally released concept vehicle which was to eventually set the stage for his final project, the new generation 900.

Björn Envall retired from Saab-Scania in 1992, just two years before the two companies broke up into two separate companies, Saab Automobile AB and Scania AB.
