Chevrolet has the Volt, Opel the Ampera and now Cadillac has the Converj. So what about Saab? What would a Swedish interpretation of GM’s E-Flex platform look like? It took the imagination of a 24 year old designer to answer that question.

Mayeul Walser wanted to create a luxurious four-seater coupe that blends the futuristic feel of sci-fi movies with the elegance of products from renowned fashion houses such as Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel.

The Fashionista will be powered by a hybrid powertrain coupling a V6 gasoline engine with an electric motor to produce (a purely theoretical) output of 300 HP.

I like the design concept, the inspiration that created this e-flex Saab but not the given name.

Definitely, this fahionista thing seemed over board and self imposing, they should have used a better name for this e-car!

Yes, that sounds like it is trying very hard to get that recognition to become a fashion icon. But I think fashionista would mean like a type of person who is finding its identity from experimenting alot in terms of mix-maching haute cotoure fashion with a street smart look. That when you are talking about clothing fashion but with a car I don’t think so.

Volt is meant to comeout as a pure plug-in EV unlike the SAAB E-flex , this one runs in a hybrid engine. The Fashionista is a very coloquial term, sounds so metro sexual.
