Saab Designer, Bryan Nesbitt offered his time to speak to a number of members of the press at the New York International Auto Show during a group discussion.

I think that you will find his frank and to the point insight and information about the Saab 9-X BioHybrid as well as the driving styles in the United States versus Europe very interesting indeed.

A special thanks again goes to Saab Automobile USA, General Motors & Saab of Hunterdon / JMK Saab for making this interview possible.

Tonight featured the Saab Reflective event at the IAC Building in New York City. The Saab Reflective event served as a compliment to the Geneva Motor Show back on March 3rd which set the stage for the North American Premiere of the Saab 9-X BioHybrid Concept.

This event not only featured the Saab 9-X BioHybrid, but also the Saab 9-4x BioPower Concept that had its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, back on January 13th, 2008. This venue also was my first experience seeing the Saab 9-X BioHybrid, and I will share my thoughts on this, but that will be after tomorrow morning’s experience at the New York Auto Show.

While these two products were featured at this event, the focus appeared to be on design, where the re-unveiling of both these vehicles was done on the auspises of Saab Automobile’s position to launch a new merchandising campaign with eco-friendly clothing.

Tomorrow morning I will be at the New York Auto Show, so please expect more experience summaries in the days ahead, followed by some great video footage and my entire thoughts on the Saab 9-X BioHybrid.
