Greetings all, from an early morning start at the New York International Auto Show. The press corps is still filing in and it won’t get really hectic at the Saab stand until tomorrow.
That’s not to say there isn’t already plenty of interest, however. Plans seem to change pretty quickly around here and contrary to the plan I shared here yesterday, PhoeniX is on display today and the cameras are already clicking.
It’s an all-new product lineup on the Saab stand today. As well as PhoeniX, we have the Independence Edition 9-3 Convertible, the Saab 9-5 SportCombi and a Saab 9-4x in white. When the public days begin on Friday, a Saab 9-5 sedan will be added to the lineup.
The Saab stand is well placed inside “Level 3” of the Javits Center (curiously, Level 3 is on the same physical level as Level 1 but separated by a wall). Saab are quite central within the hall and surrounded by Porsche, Jaguar, Volvo, Lotus, Spyker, Acura and Audi. That’s a good neighborhood to be in.
We’ll have more from New York as the day progresses.
I had a request in comments to add a photo of the tailgate of the 9-5 SportCombi. Here it is….
