Saab Says if Saab 92 Supermini is Revived, It Will Include a Hybrid Option
In brief: Saab has been toying with the idea of reviving the once-popular 92 Supermini brand and has been working on a mockup of a new version, which they now say will include a hybrid option if it goes to production.
Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: 92 Supermini
Autocar has rumors that the design of the new 92 is nearly complete and discussions are underway for the new Saab to go into limited production, including a hybrid variant.
Saab's CEO Victor Muller says that the vehicle will target a 30,000+ unit per year production run with the hybrid being about 10% higher in price than the standard. The earliest it would be seen is 2013 or 2014.
And so ...
Autocar also says the rumor is that Saab is looking for a partner for the project, though details on that were sketchy.
