Sales are picking up very well considering they only have two models on the showroom floor. Once the 9-4x hits US dealers in one month, expect an increase in foot traffic that will certainly boost sales. Remember, GM last year made 75,000+ alone of it’s brother, the SRX.
UPDATE: You’ll remember last month there was a small media press event for the 9-4x in Northern Virginia. This was a small event with only 4 vehicles mainly for long lead publications which need more time to get their articles ready for print in Summer issues. At some point next month in May, Saab will hold their larger media event, so to all the US journalists who check in here– don’t worry, you haven’t missed your chance. It sounds like you’ll even be able to speak with Victor himself.

Saab sold 707 9-3s, 123 9-5s, for a total of 830 units in March 2011. It’s good to see that stocks are up to more normal levels too.
We’re also tipped off that these are all genuine sales, not dealer demos. That practice has been discontinued. A 630% increase in sales, not too bad, but they’ll still improve a lot this year.
