Saab 9-3 TX Edition & New Concept Car At Geneva Show?

Posted on 26. Feb, 2010 by .

Saab History has recently learned from the folks at the Geneva Motor Show that while the Saab stand will have products we know and recognize, Saab 9-3x, all new Saab 9-5, it’s supposed to also have the Saab 9-3 TX edition as well as a concept car?

Anyone have any guesses as to what this concept car could be? I’ve tried contacting Saab Switzerland to no avail: I wonder if this is entirely accurate? It’s showing on their website, so maybe it’s a surprise? I would like some clarification from Saab on this, if they are reading this post.

Here’s what Saab History has recently learned from Dimitri in Switzerland, who will be kindly providing photographs for us at the event.

This is the only information we have from the Geneva Salon website:

The all new Saab 9-5 European tour that began in mid-October has apparently come to an abrupt ending.

Saab Automobile has apparently canceled the remaining two stops of Greece & Italy for the all new Saab 9-5’s European tour. The countries that did stay on track as part of this tour included the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Poland, Hungary and most recently, Austria.

To end this European tour with only two remaining destinations does not send a good message to the outside public.

* United Kingdom – Oct 14-17
* Spain+Portugal – Oct 21-22
* BeNeLux – Oct 20-25
* Poland – Oct 29
* Hungary – Nov 10-11
* Austria – Nov 18-19

* Greece – Nov 26-28 – Cancelled
* Italy – Dec 10-11 – Cancelled

All New Saab 9-5 Begins Road Tour In Europe

The all new Saab 9-5 is beginning its tour of Europe this fall as I previously mentioned starting in the United Kingdom and ending in Italy as part of a global campaign.

While this is very good to hear, what significantly concerns me is that the piece below says the all new Saab 9-5 will be arriving in dealerships a year from now, “late 2010”! I thought this would be at dealerships in the spring of 2010 at the latest. Is this a typo?
