Saab coming to Canada in September, Saab 9-3 to arrive in October 2010

An an article from the Globe and Mail today, Mike Colleran talks quite a bit about the return of Saab to the Canadian market.

He also mentions this:

The 9-5 is scheduled to arrive in dealers by the end of September, said Colleran, while the revised 9-3 is planned to arrive soon after in October.

We still don’t have anything as to what that car might look like (surely there are some making their way around Trollhattan by now?) but we do have a few clues as to what changes have been made.

I’ve also heard recently that the 2011 model year will be a comparatively short one for the 9-3, with a longer year for a ‘farewell’ version for MY2012 prior to the brand new model coming, late in 2012 as a 2013 model.

About Canada:

Starting next week, Saab Cars North America will officially take over the warranty claims and service responsibility for late-model Saabs from GM dealers in Canada.

The first new Saab model, the 2011 9-5 mid-size sedan, is scheduled to arrive by the end of September.

But I think we knew almost all of that, anyway…..

Good to hear that the wheels will start rolling in Canada soon. It’ll take some time to get some speed up again, but you’ve got to start somewhere.
