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.

Saab 9-X BioHybrid ConceptSpeaking about the concept car Anthony Lo, Director of Advanced Design at General Motors Europe, said: "The 9-X BioHybrid is a vision of what a future compact car from Saab could look like.

"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.
