The Saab Facilities in Trollhättan, Sweden for those that may not have ever visited or are curious about consist of the following.

The Saab Factory, which produces the current Saab 9-3 and 9-5 Sport Sedans and SportCombis located approximately 2.5 miles North of downtown Trollhättan, Sweden, situated alongside the Göta Alv river.

The Saab Technical Center, located across the street from the factory South East, is responsible for integrating the design and engineering of not only the concept cars, but also the projects themself directly into production.

The Saab Test Track located behind the factory, where testing of development vehicles as well as crash tests can be conducted.

The Saab Advanced Concept Center is located about 3.5 miles directly South of of the factory, again alongside the Göta Alv river just past the downtown as you are leaving in a brick building near the museum. This facility at one point was responsible for the advanced design of future Saab automobiles, but I am unsure if it is still being used in this capacity today due to the GM Europe Design Center in Germany, now being responsible for advanced design.

Lastly, we have the Saab Car Museum, which is located within the same area where the Saab Advanced Concept Center is/was and houses over 100 Saab rare vehicles including one offs, prototypes, concept cars, race cars and production cars.

So here they are, and if you are interested in visiting the Saab Automobile Facilities during a trip to Trollhättan, Sweden, plan on enjoying visits to both the Saab Museum & Factory as you can normally get the opportunity to visit them. The other facilities as you may have guessed, are obviously not for public tours.
