At the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, when Saab used to be a part of General Motors, the Swedish brand unveiled something called the 9-4X BioPower Concept. Besides showing a 2.0L BioPower 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that made 300-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, the concept hinted at a future crossover for Saab.
Known as the Saab 9-4, the crossover was expected to enter production in 2009, but was delayed and then GM eventually sold Saab to Spyker. Ever since, plans for a production Saab crossover were left up in the air.
Apparently, it is now reported the Saab 9-4X crossover will definitely enter production and could show up as early as this year. The news was found in a press release that shows off the company”s newest ad campaign “Move Your Mind.”
