SAAB is planning on producing a hybrid prototype next spring based on the technology from the it's GM family's technology. All this is according to channel 4 news.
MD of Saab Sweden Bengt Nilemo says: "Current financial incentives (in Sweden) such as a reduction in car benefit taxes and projected city congestion and parking charges have, of course, contributed to our success. These initiatives from the government were far-sighted and the market has reacted just as everyone expected, choosing eco-friendly cars that cut C02 emissions& BioPower's major advantage is its simplicity and this is one of the reasons we are now introducing the car in Great Britain, France and Germany, followed by Norway, Finland and Denmark. At the Detroit Motor Show in January we will also show a concept for a 9-5 Aero with 310bhp."
