The first unit for retail of the Saab 9-4X Crossover has left the assembly line plant in Ramos Arizpe in Mexico.

The President and CEO of Saab, Jan Åke Jonsson, was present at the start of regular production, only three months after the global launch of the 9-4X Motor Show Los Angeles, and has been accompanied by Executive Director Vehicle Line, Anders Svensson, and Product Manager of the 9-4X, Mikael Jacobsson.

The first vehicle with the chassis # 00001 is an Aero in Metallic Ice Pearl with an 2.8 V6 engine and will go to a media presentation in the United States before being sent to Sweden for display at the Saab museum.

“This is a great day for Saab,” said Jonsson. “The arrival of the 9-4X is another important step in developing our business plan. This car, sporty and distinctive, we can significantly expand the appeal of our brand and gives us access to a new market segment of vigorous growth, specially in America. ”

With the advanced XWD all-wheel drive and adaptive chassis control, the 9-4X will begin marketing in the United States in May. In Europe and other global markets, sales are scheduled from August.

  • Who was Erik Carlsson?

    Erik Carlsson

     

     

    Many new members to the Club ask the same question -  “Who is Erik Carlsson?”  I suppose a lot of people who were not around in the 60s have never heard of him even though this giant of a man is often referred to as “Mr SAAB”.

    Erik was born in 1929 in Trollhattan, Sweden, not far from the SAAB factory, but at that time the factory was only producing aircraft. Erik was 20 when production of the first SAAB cars started.  His first passion was motorbikes, he bought a Norton 500 new when he was 18 from Nystrom’s where he was working. Pelle Nystrom was the Norton importer for Sweden. At weekends he took part in hillclimbs, motorcross, road racing and, during the winter, ice track racing.

     
  • GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

    As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.
