Saab’s latest concept car, the 9-X BioHybrid has been named “Best Concept” at the Geneva Motor Show. With this award, the 9-X BioHybrid joins the very successful Saab Aero X concept which also received AutoWeek’s “Best in Show” honours at its debut in Geneva two years ago.


Anthony Lo, Director of Advanced Design at General Motors Europe spoke on behalf of the design team and the Saab Brand Centre in Sweden ‘We are thrilled that our work has been recognised with this prestigious award.’ Speaking about the concept car he said: ‘The 9-X BioHybrid is a vision of what a future compact car from Saab could look like. It is designed to reflect the priorities of youthful customers who seek progressive looks, responsible performance and high-tech communications, all in a sporty, fun-to-drive package.’

Exploring design themes from Saab’s Aero X and earlier 9X concepts, the 9-X BioHybrid also demonstrates the potential for ultra-efficient power from a 200 hp (147 kW), 1.4-litre BioPower turbo engine backed by GM’s next-generation hybrid system. Projected combined cycle CO2 emissions of just 105 g/km on E85 fuel are testimony to the promise of this package.
