Saab Highlights at 2008 London Motor Show

Posted on 22. Jul, 2008 by in 2000-2009, United Kingdom

The 2008 London Motor Show takes place between July 23rd and August 3rd and Saab Automobile will be there with their current lineup of vehicles. I wonder if the Saab 9-5 will also be present amongst the rest of the product lineup as well.

There have not been any photos of the Saab stand taken at the show yet, but as soon as are, I will post them here.

In the meantime, please visit the London Auto Show’s website here:

Here are the highlights:

Saab extends the availability of its innovative all-wheel-drive system for Model Year 2009, while also expanding its Aero range to include BioPower flex-fuel technology. Saab’s latest concept cars – the 9-X BioHybrid and 9-4X BioPower – signal the Swedish premium brand’s intention to enter all major segments of the global car market.

The Model Year 2009 Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan and SportCombi line-up now features XWD as an option for 210 hp, 2.0-liter turbo models, in addition to the top-of-the-range Aero 280 hp, 2.8V6 turbo engine. A rear eLSD and a sports chassis package can also be specified.

* Saab BioPower added to Aero performance range

Saab leads the automotive sector with its BioPower engines that deliver increased power while exploiting the environmental benefits of bioethanol (E85) as a sustainable fuel. This unique flex-fuel technology is now offered for Aero variants in both 9-3 and 9-5 product ranges.

The 9-X BioHybrid – a vision of what a future compact car from Saab could look like – and the 9-4X BioPower Concept – announcing Saab’s imminent entry into Crossover segment – share signature Scandinavian styling themes while showcasing future developments in efficient powertrain technology. They symbolize Saab’s commitment to enter all major segments of the car market with distinctive premium products.

    ‘I wonder if the Saab 9-5 will also be present amongst the rest of the product lineup as well’ – you don’t mean the new 9-5 do you? Sure we know from Trollhattansaab that this won’t be seen until much later this year or early next. The current 9-5s are clearly stated as being present.
