Non-polluting driving is this year the principal topic at the Geneva Motor Show. In cooperation with Rinspeed, Saab will be showing with the "9-5 BioPower Rinspeed" how vision and reality can harmonize. The model is equipped with a Bioethanol-engine and demonstrates that already today is possible to reduced CO2 without giving up the pleasure of driving.
The latest climate report a clear change: humans by their collective behavior are primary contributors to global warming. The reduction of CO2-emissions becomes a central subject – also at the Geneva Motor Show. With the Saab BioPower presented at the last motor show, the E85 (85% Bioethanol and 15% gasoline) operating vehicle, Saab became the leadership of this field, but also proved that ecological technology and driving pleasure could coincide perfectly.
Vision and reality; this year Saab will make at the Geneva Motor Show another step further. On the 5030 stand the visitors can admire an extremely successful connection of vision and reality: the "Saab 9-5 BioPower Rinspeed".
>The modified Saab BioPower attracts through its yellow gloss paint. The Saab BioPower use materials incorporated in the future study "eXasis" by Rinspeed. ( eXasis is the first transparent High-tech plastic-car, that like the Saab BioPower is equipped with a Bioethanol-drive ).
So the Saab BioPower Rinspeed will show new applications like the optical fiber material in the rhombus-design. The rhombus pattern continues in the coating of the seats.Speed-yellow security belts and the new fibreglass dashboard complete the transformations of the Saab BioPower.
Rinspeed introduces a car like the eXasis that comes with non-polluting drive and a strong 150 HP. The parallel Saab BioPower, sporting 180hp led the two company’s traditionalists to cooperate.
With the "Saab 9-5 BIOPOWER100 Concept", Saab presents at the Geneva Motor Show a vehicle that can go 100% percent with Bioethanol. Saab continues its philosophy to place always the person and the environment into the main point.
