Geneva, here we come!
My application for press credentials is in, and RedJ’s will be following quite soon. We’re doubling-down to make sure everything’s covered as thoroughly as possible.
Gonna be a big time, baby!
Saab Australia watchers should check out this latest article at Go Auto.
The first shipment, which will bring the 9-3x to our shores, is just days away from landing and in that article, Saab Australia chief, Stephen Nicholls, outlines the strategy for this year.
In a nutshell – they’ll start quietly, build when the 9-5 arrives and take a long-term perspective. They have 11 dealers signed up so far, but are looking to add a couple more, especially in Sydney.
Meanwhile, back in Sweden…..
Saab have lost their first case relating to the partition of debts arising from their re-organisation in 2009. This case relates to wage guarantees and as with the rental case mentioned a few days ago, Saab were seeking to have those guarantees counted as part of the accord. The court has decided it isn’t. Saab will appeal.
Before you start weeping, remember that Saab are entitled to make a case here. It’s not the end of the road and should things end badly, it’s still not the end of the road, not by any stretch.
Teknikens Varld held a poll, asking which “Kombi” people were likely to buy. The Saab 9-5 stole the show with 61% of the vote.
Teknikens are now saying they think the vote might have been skewed. They can’t look at SU, though. I didn’t even know it was on until Tobias A pointed it out to me (now that it’s finished).
It’s late. I’m done.
