Saab to build a hybrid vehicle with the Two-Mode system
Not content with a major flex-fuel push, Saab is joining in on the two-mode hybrid party at General Motors. At the Geneva Motor Show today, Saab Managing Director Jan Ake Jonsson indicated that future Saabs will be even more closely based on other GM vehicles and includes plans for a full hybrid system. So far there is no indication of which vehicle would get the hybrid system or when, although it would not be a surprise to see it mated up with a BioPower flex-fuel engine. Let's just hope it's not a variant of the GMT900 since another full size SUV is the last thing Saab needs. More likely it will be a variant of the Theta CUVs which already has an Opel variant in the form of the Antera.
