The Saab 9X Air BioHybrid said hello to the world on a pedestal full of disco lights at the Paris Motor Show. It did not, however, move. So for now, if you want to see what the 9X Air will be able to do when it finally does get rolling, we have this little video courtesy of GM. The 9X BioHybrid and its Air BioHybrid sibling are supposed to provide clues to a forthcoming Saab 9-1 small car, and the video is quite cool. But frankly, we also find it a bit saddening, since we can't quite believe that we'll see anything nearly this cool on an actual Saab, and the way things are going, we might not see the Saab 9-1.

      Bio Hybrid???? This is why GM is losing money, just build a nice, solid, fuel efficient small car.

      Aside from a couple concepts and cool promo videos, what else did Saab do in the last 10 years? Ah, I forgot the 9-5 redesign (now with a second-hand tail lights), a rebadged Subaru and of course the 3-series/C-class/A4 fighter - The Saab 9-3 (which is as much of a competition to the above bunch as Joe the Plumber to Lenox Luis).

      Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a gorgeous vehicle. Yes, it is unusual in design, but stunning regardless. I own a Saab 9-5. Yes, Saabs have their issues, however, they have a very distinctive design language. Forget the name, but focus on the vehicle. It is a work of art. I would rather put one of these on the road than a run-of-the-mill BMW or Mercedes convertible. Just as long as GM/Saab smarten up regarding the quality of the engine/transmission/electronics/sensors/displays/motor mounts/cheap-plastic-bits-fit-to-be-in-a-McDonalds-toy, etc. If they build this car with the quality and reliability of the Japanese, the German car makers will shake in their pants... at least a little, anyways.
