9-4x is registered!

Edu’s been doing some Saab-snooping and come up with what we Aussies would call either a bottler, a corker or a rip-snorter! To put that in layman’s terms, he’s made a heck of a good find.

Some coverage of the 9-4x has made mention of the fact that the model ‘might’ be called the 9-4x. In other words, it hadn’t been settled, though it seemed to be an open secret that it would. Now we have confirmation by way of a registered trademark now owned by Saab.

Here’s a snapshot of the info and how your 9-4x badge will look:

Saab 9-4x trademark

Great catch, Edu. Saabludos!

  1. 94x and 96x

    at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

    ‘9-1’ to ‘9-8’ are Saab trademarks. As are also ‘Saab 91’ to Saab 98. Presumably to block others from using similar sounding model names/numbers.

    If the first two links don’t work you’ll need to do a Trademark search. If you choose Structured Form Search (Boolean) you can search for Saab as the Owner Name.

  2. But, which car will use this 9-4X name? Will it be the new Crossover/SUV that is supposed to replace the 9-7X? I doubt it, simply because 9-4X sound too “small” compared to 9-7X in the eyes of Americans. I think SAAB will do the same as Ovlov (V30, S40, V50, S60, XC60, V70, C70, S80, XC90, whow that looks like a lot of different cars…) and use most of the “names” from 9-1 to 9-8 in the next few years. I think we will see 9-1 and 9-2 off the Delta platform, 9-3 and 9-4 off the Epsilon II, 9-5 and 9-6 off the stretched Epsilon II. 9-7 and 9-8 is for everyone the speculate about! But the Mexican car can be named 9-7X if it is to replace the Chevvy based 9-7X.
