Magnus Hansson seems to like to keep people interested in Saab by spreading rumours about new Saab cars.
On march 2010 he spoke about the 9-3 emitting less than 120 g/km CO2. A couple of months later those cars were on sale.
Well it seems like Mr. Hansson is spreading some rumours once again. In an interview about Saab hunting for Volvo and Audi in the company car market in Sweden he indicates that Saab has still some card to put on the table.
Dragloket i dag är den mindre 9-3:an, som också har kämpat sig under den magiska miljöbilsgränsen på 120 gram koldioxid per kilometer, något som är viktigt inte minst för företagsförsäljningen. Frågan är om det kan vara något som även 9-5:an kommer under?
– Det får vi se, säger Magnus Hansson och ler.
Main engine is now less of 9-3: an, who also has struggled over the magic green car limit of 120 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre, which is important, especially for corporate sales.The question is whether there might be something that even 9-5 is over?
– We’ll see, “said Magnus Hansson and smiles.
So, will we see a 9-5 emitting less than 120 g/km CO2?
I say yes. And although I have no Djup Strupe to back up my affirmation, I see different hints out there that point in that direction.
2011 will be a very interesting Year for Saab !!!!!
Thanks to Gaijp and TurboLover for the hint.
BMW will present in March its 320d Efficient dynamics Touring with 161hp and 114 g/km CO2.
This is in my eyes the only competitor for the Saab, because BMW is also trying to combine good performance with low CO2 values.
