It’s Saturday and I’m going into creative mode.
Step 1 is building a camera mount for in-car use! Watch this space.
The “send Swade to Sweden” campaign (for The Saab Festival, June 2007) will be kicking off soon. Don’t worry, I’m going to make Donna Summer proud and work hard for the money.
Any ideas welcome in comments.
Here’s a potential marketing coup for Saab….
The city of Berkeley, California has committed to buy a fleet of plug-in hybrid vehicles as soon as a car maker actually starts to build some. Berkeley is planning on purchasing 40 plug-in hybrids and follows a previous decision by Marin County to make a similar “soft-order”……Several other Bay Area governments and agencies have also indicated their intentions to purchase plug-in hybrids, including San Francisco, Oakland and Pacific Gas and Electric.
California seems like the perfect place for a bunch of Biopower Plug-In Hybrid Convertibles, doesn’t it? They’ve already built one, why not build a bunch more as a demonstration fleet?
Odds are that Toyota will cash-in and make another big splash, cementing themselves as the environmental darlings, but this is a great opportunity if Saab had the technology production-ready.
Thanks Gripen for the link.
Despite the dodgy accounting methods in the software (count the votes compared to the stated total), it appears that a clear majority wouldn’t mind seeing a 9-7x Aero similar to the one being shown at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Of course it’d have to be a bit more practical with wheels a size that you can actually buy tyres for (without having to sell your children), and turbocharging the i6 motor wouldn’t hurt either.
But done well I think there’s definitely be a market for it.
