PUBLISHED ENTRY #2000
I don’t know much about Gren Car Journal or how long it’s been around, but this article would tend to suggest it’s one of the green-transport sector’s pioneers.
It was sent to me from Jan-Willem Vester at SaabUSA.
You can read the full article here.
In short, Saab have been at this alternative fuel thing for a little longer than I knew, with this concept vehicle being shown in Chicago back in 1992 when this original article was published. The altered 9000 is capable of running on ethanol, methanol or gasoline. And just like the BioPower vehicles that some of us can buy today, it can run on any mix of the three.
Not bad for way back in 1992.
The article’s well worth a quick read. And if the photo’s the genuine article then it looks like that 1992 concept might have been a precursor to the 9000 Aero. Check out those super-Aero rims and the most comfortable automobile seats ever made.
