Saab 9-4X

Knowledge Base: Saab Buyer's Guide

Trolhattan, Sweden, Feb. 14, 2011 -- The first Saab 9-4X crossover to be commercially produced has now rolled off the assembly line at the Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.

Saab Automobile President & CEO Jan Ake Jonsson was on hand to see regular production begin, just three months after the 9-4X was unveiled last November at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show. Jonsson was joined by Executive Director Vehicle Lines Anders Svensson and 9-4X Product Manager Mikael Jacobsson.

The first vehicle -- chassis number 00001 -- an Ice Pearl metallic Aero model with a 2.8V6 turbo engine, is bound for a media test drive event in the United States before being shipped to Sweden for display at the Saab car museum.

"This is a great day for Saab," said Jonsson. "The arrival of the 9-4X is another important step in the fulfillment of our business plan. This sporty and distinctive product will significantly broaden the appeal of our brand and give us access to an important new vehicle segment that is still growing, particularly in the United States."

Featuring Saab's advanced XWD all-wheel-drive system and adaptive chassis control, the 9-4X goes on sale in the United States in May, with sales in Europe and other world markets scheduled to begin from August.
