New Saab 9-5 at Hawtai dealer

I assume that this is just a coincidence or maybe just someone who wanted to try out the marriage even before all needed approvals have been given, but several blogs and online car media report that this new Saab 9-5 is at a Hawtai dealer:

The car to the right of the Saab is Hawtai's Baolige B35 SUV based on the last generation Hyundai Sante-Fe platform. The design resembles a Porsche Cayenne.

The pictures found on suggests that it's merly a coincidence that the Saab is photographed next to a Hawtai car. I'm not even sure they are parked outside a dealership!

According to Chinese media has also been speculating around what price the Saab 9-5 will get in China. Some say it will start at 350,000 Cinese Yuan  (EUR 37,100 / $ 53,900),  others say around 480,000 Yuan (EUR 50,900 / $ 73,900). Time will tell.
