20th February, 2011

Production of the Saab 9-4X cross-over begun at the Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico on 14th February, 2011.

Saab Automobile President & CEO Jan Åke Jonsson was on hand to see production begin just three months after the 9-4X was unveiled at the 2010 Los Angeles Motor Show last November. Jonsson was joined by Executive Director Vehicle Lines Anders Svensson and 9-4X Product Manager Mikael Jacobsson.

The first vehicle - chassis number 00001 - an Ice Pearl metallic Aero model with a 2.8 V6 turbo engine, is bound for a media test drive event in the United States before being shipped to Sweden for display at the Saab car museum.

“This is a great day for Saab,” said Jonsson on 14th February, 2011. “The arrival of the 9-4X is another important step in the fulfilment of our business plan. This sporty and distinctive product will significantly broaden the appeal of our brand and give us access to an important new vehicle segment that is still growing, particularly in the United States.”

Featuring Saab’s advanced XWD all-wheel-drive system and adaptive chassis control, the 9-4X goes on sale in the United States in May, with sales in Europe and other world markets, including Australia, scheduled to begin from August.
