As we all know Saab is still producing cars, not exactly Saab, but GM is producing the 9-4x in Ramos Arizpe (Mex.) for Saab.
Many asked about a reassurement that the 9-4x is really being build. And know one of our readers has sent us the link to the August production table for the US, Canada and Mexico, and on this table you can find the 9-4x among all the other GM cars.
For the ones that don’t want to search
Saab 9-4X Last Week: 58 August 2011: 116 2011: 573
Looking at this I would say that the 9-4x is being produced at a 58 cars per week rate. It is a very small figure, for instance 1.781 SRX have been build in the last week, but at least it is a constant amount. We still have something like 20 weeks till years end, which means GM will build this year about 1.700 9-4x, if the rate is kept constant.

I don’t know if the currently build cars are MY 11 or MY 12. Although there is not much difference between both model years, MY 11 was exclusively for the US market where MY 12 is to be distributed world wide.
I from my side hope that those are MY 12, and that the pre-ordered 9-4x in Europe can be delivered in September (it takes a little time from Mexico till Europe) 😉
