Saab working on new concept car that will hint at future compact car

Saab 9X Concept

According to Saab’s Director of Global Operations Knut Simonsson, the Swedish automaker is working on a new concept car that will hint at a future small model for the brand.

“It’s going to be very important and will indicate what the Saab message is going to be,” Simonsson said.

The concept will make its debut within the next 12 months and will take Saab into a segment that it is not currently present in.  The model would fit below the 9-3.

Even after you see the concept within the next 12 months, don’t expect to see a compact Saab on the roads anytime soon. The company is still regrouping as it joins Koenigsegg and breaks away from General Motors. More important right now are the replacements for the 9-3 and the 9-5.
