Saab Australia will sponsor a demonstration fleet of BioPower 9-5 vehicles to promote ethanol. The BioPower 9-5 is already a sales hit in Sweeden and has been launched in Europe. The turbocharged 9-5 likes the higher octane rating and Saab gives the 2.3-liter BioPower engine higher horsepower and torque ratings while on ethanol. Saab hopes Australian officials follow the lead of the Swedish lawmakers who offer tax incentives and benefits such as free parking to ethanol vehicles.
