I received a query about the Lane Departure Warning system that features in the new Saab 9-5 and whether this system will be available for Right Hand Drive markets.
I asked Saab’s Global Product Manager, Magnus Hansson, about it and he passed on the following. Magnus asked me to pass it on to the customer with a query and I figured this would be of interest to all potential RHD market customers.
Regarding LDW and traffic sign recognition it is correct that they will not be offered in RHD markets from the start (like LHD markets), however we will in the near future also offer the feature also on RHD markets. So it is definitely apart of the global offer and the new 9-5 and will be made available for both drive positions for the vast majority of the life cycle.
So the quick answer is yes, it will be available straight away for LHD markets but not straight away for the RHD market.
