I received some notice via email overnight that prospective purchasers in Sweden can now order a 9-3 with a 1.8t outfitted with BioPower. The regular gasoline setup yields 150hp and 240Nm of torque. Using E85 it will turn out 175hp and 265Nm.
There’s nothing about this yet on the Saab Sweden website and there’s been no press release, but the advice to me overnight was that dealers were open for orders as of February 16th. The price premium is said to be 9,000SEK.
As is standard practice, I’ve written to Saab Sweden for some confirmation.
Sales figures for the 9-5 BioPower over the next few months will be very, very interesting.
For those of you that are in to collecting 1:43 scale model Saabs, there are now some BioPower 9-5s for you to collect.
They’re available in either Jet Black or Silver. The Elkparts model cars page is located here. Check ’em out.
MSN cars have a video test of the 9-5 BioPower. My thanks to Viking for posting the link in comments overnight…..Good viewing.
