Saab 9-X BioHybrid wins ‘Best Concept’ award

The Saab 9-X BioHybrid has been named ‘Best Concept’ at the Geneva Motor Show. The award follows the ‘Best in Show’ award received by the Aero X Concept at the Geneva Show in 2006.

With this award, the 9-X BioHybrid joins the very successful Saab Aero X concept which also received AutoWeek’s “Best in Show” honours at its debut in Geneva two years ago and Autocar’s "Concept Car of the year" award.

"It is designed to reflect the priorities of youthful customers who seek progressive looks, responsible performance and high-tech communications, all in a sporty, fun-to-drive package."

Exploring design themes from Saab’s Aero X and earlier 9X concepts, the 9-X BioHybrid is powered by a 200 hp (147 kW), 1.4-litre BioPower turbo engine backed by GM’s next-generation hybrid system, with projected combined cycle CO2 emissions of just 105 g/km on E85 fuel.
