The Saab 9-2 Small Car Will Have Hybrid Option

Posted on 15. Jun, 2010 by in 2010-2019, 9-2

Autoblog Green has recently reported that the Saab 9-2 (pronounced “Nine Two”), a historical reconnection to Saab Automobile’s original 92 (pronounced “Ninety Two”), rounding out the production lineup, will have a hybrid option.

This is good news as this vehicle must have a hybrid, but also must have a true hatch, so if we can continue to refer to the Saab 9-2 as a “Hybrid Hatch”, then we’ll see some significant demand for this long awaited segment. This vehicle has additional reasons to be promising as it will be the first official Saab model to have 100% Spyker and 0% GM influence!

Here’s the piece below by Autoblog’s citing Autocar.

The decision to green light the 92 will be made within the next 100 days. If the 92 gets the go, a hybrid model will definitely be available. The design for the 92 is all but finalized, as are the specs and dimensions of the vehicle, though Saab’s keeping this info under wraps. As Muller tells Autocar, the company targets 30,000 to 60,000 units per year at a price of “Mini plus 10 percent” with a release date of late 2013 or early 2014.

    The 9-3’s replacement (900 or whatever?) had better come with a hatch too!

    Markc,

    Exactly! The 9-3 must come in 3-door & 5-door variants and the 9-2 of course must also be a hatch.

    It would be nice to see the NG 9-3 model with the twin-door hatch (double hinged), and the 9-2 with a standard hatch or something even more innovative!

    Saab should really hold their ground with the hatch bringing in an incredibly new and innovative relaunch to what they did for 28 years!

    I think the 5 door should be a twin door, but the 3 door coupe a pure hatch. That allows Saab to cover the 4/5 door market with just one model. The coupe can be slightly more of a sports coupe than 3 doors of the past, but still very practical as well.
