Saab 9-X Air Concept
New Green Sports Car from Saab
Saab 9-X : Saab will unveil their new 9-X at next months Paris motor show. Saab believes that it will be one of the greenest sports cars on the planet. It will be one of the most fuel efficient soft tops with a small 1.4 litre turbo charged petrol/electric hybrid engine capable of 56 mpg. It has CO2 emissions of just 107g/km and still hits 0-62 mph in 8.1 seconds.
The canopy top is in fabric rather than metal to save weight and provide extra boot space; it is fully automatic and folds neatly in the boot deck. It is an impressive good looking car with its prominent rear body pillars that curve upwards to mount the flat folding electric roof.
The Saab 9-X is a concept car but it is reported that this will be the next Saab Convertible and will be due around 2010.
