2008 Saab 9-X BioHybrid Wins U.S. Concept Car Award

I'm not sure I can describe this as beautifully as they have here, but this car deserves a bit of publicity at least. Designed for youthful drivers, the 2008 Saab 9-X BioHybrid has the looks and feel that anyone who is going to fall in love with their cars would want. The vehicle is designed to give the drive connectivity to its vehicle, offering just about everything you can imgaine except theater seating.

The 9-X BioHybrid also demonstrates the potential for ultra-efficient power from a 200 hp (147 kW), 1.4-liter BioPower turbo engine backed by GM’s next-generation hybrid system. Projected combined cycle CO2 emissions of just 105 g/km on E85 fuel are testimony to the promise of this package.

“The Saab 9-X BioHybrid blends organic form with ecologically sound propulsion for both aesthetic and environmental appeal”, said jury panel member Arv Voss of Auto Impressions. Added Bob Kroupa of the Automotive Writers Group: “Saab takes center stage with a new design approach for a compact vehicle. With the BioHybrid turbo engine included, we have a winner”.
