Maybe that headline’s the tiniest bit exaggerated, but then again maybe it isn’t. But it’s the first BioPower sale I’ve heard about here in Australia.
It’s one thing for Australia to join the BioPower evolution, but it’d be little more than a warm-hearted gesture if no-one took up the technology. Thankfully, I’ve recently received news about the sale of a BioPower 9-3 being ordered for delivery early next year.
The car was ordered by a guy I met in Sydney last August when I was up there collecting my 900. His name’s Ferdinand and the car will be a Snow Silver sedan, specified as follows:
147kw Bio-power ( Linear Sport)
sunroof (factory fitted)
rear parking sensors (factory fitted)
extra cup holder in console
Aluminium trim around gear
Aero steering wheel
And it should look a little something like this:
Now that is one sharp looking little beast. Photos must be forthcoming.
Best of all, Ferdinand has an outlet nearby that sells E85. It must be an industrial thing, as they’ve asked him to supply certification from Saab showing that it’ll be OK for use on E85. Providing he can show that (which I’m sure he’ll be able to) they’ll sell it to him straight away.
