Saab - Europe’s number one supplier of flex-fuel cars
Saab has one of the greatest success with its environmentally-friendly BioPower model range. It is now clearly the leading supplier of bioethanol (E85) ‘flex-fuel’ cars in the Swedish, as well as to the European market.
During the first five months of the year, Saab delivered 6800 9-3 and 9-5 BioPower models to Swedish customers. And the sales pace was maintained last month (June), when the Saab 9-3 BioPower, launched in early spring, came top of the Swedish sales charts, giving Saab a 38% market share in the segment for environmentally-friendly cars.
“It is very satisfying that our customers appreciate our BioPower offer,” says Jan Åke Jonsson, Saab Automobile’s Managing Director. “BioPower shows it is possible to choose an environmentally friendly and safe car, without sacrificing comfort, driveability or power.”
Saab will continue its R&D efforts to bring new products and solutions to the market that focus on both high performance and energy saving, as seen, for example, with the Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept premiered at the Stockholm Motor Show last year.
