Owing to the fact that at times, I can be a monumental tight-arse with my money, I don’t have subscription access to the Automotive News website. I can tell you though, that they have a by-line stating:
General Motors is considering a crossover vehicle for its Saab brand. GM would base the vehicle on a Cadillac concept …
This coincides pretty well with a few things that have popped up in the last 2 weeks. Firstly there was the AutoTelegraf article earlier this month that made it pretty obvious that some research had been done into a Saab crossover option:
Saab will get a Crossover. The Swedish design department have worked for some time at this model, in which they have tried to make a car with Saab values from the beginning, so says an employee of the fabric to AutoTelegraaf.nl. The car, a cross between a hatchback, combi and an SUV, has been developed the last months,
I also first published rumours of a Caddy/Saab Crossover project, as reported in Sweden, in this post just over a week or so ago.
I just got an email about a Swedish news article spouting about a Cadilac BLS-based crossover vehicle. What? On epsilon? Apparently so. I’m waiting to see if there’s an online source for it, but if so, could that mean good things for a Saab 9-3 Crossover too?
Of course, in that article, it was only a Caddy crossover specifically that was being written up, but the obvious connection was that being built in Trollhattan, and with research already being done (as per the AutoTelegraf article), the potential for a Saab version of this vehicle is quite large.
I’ll have a 9-3x, please.
If anyone (Edusaab?) has access to the AutoNews article I’d love to have a read of it (hint hint).
