While the Toyota Prius (and hybrids in general) have dominated the news as alternatives to gasoline-powered vehicles, Saab has quietly been developing and manufacturing its “biopowered” 9-5 in Europe.
Well, that anonymity may soon be dashed. The General Motors-owned company has confirmed it exceeded its 2006 sales target this year and anticipates to sell three times that number next year.

A concept version of the 9-5 with a 310-horsepower flex-fuel biodiesel will be shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, in January. No reports when such a vehicle will be manufactured or if any biodiesel model will be coming to the American market.
