Sensational news: Saab has developed a small city car!!

This was of course a April Fools' Day joke! :) 

Today Swedish Tjänstebilsfakta (Company car facts) can reveal that Saab, in secrecy under the GM regime and later under Spyker, has developed a small city car named Saab 1-4X BioHybrid!!! Swedish readers head over to Ynnor to read the news!

For my other readers, here are some facts: 
  • Car developed in total secrecy
  • It's ready for production now
  • Design is a mix of the concepts Aero X, 9-X BioHybrid and 9-X Cabriolet
  • Four seater, 4.3 meters long and a hatch
  • Three cylinder BMW engine with turbo that can run on 100 per cent ethanol
  • 160 HP BioPower engine and 110 HP electric motors
  • Battery pack can be charged in six hours and has a range of 80 kilometers
  • Consumption with BioPower engine is just 3,0 l/100 km  
  • 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds

I assume that this car was developed overnight by Tjänstebilsfakta ;)
