Finally the 9-5 has reached Russia. The official importer Armand Import CIS has presented the car 5th August for the members of saab clubs and 8th August for everyone, who had registered.
Around 300 potential buyers had registered for both presentations. The visitors received different souvenirs such as Tshirts, baseball caps etc.
As it was already mentionned, the first deliveries are expected in September-October, but it depends on the production start in Trollhattan. Now the 9-5 as the 9-3 are getting certified for the Russian market
The car was well received, so now we are waiting for the official price-list which is coming soon I hope.
While the internal work is in progress there is another remarkable thing. Armand is willing to open the SAAB Concept Store at Armand Lounge in the very center of Moscow where a showroom will be combined with a lounge cafe. To place a real car in a showroom with a beautiful illunination in the night with the possibility to get some drinks after work is a great idea!
