The Saab 9-X BioHybrid concept is a vivid 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 award-winning Aero X and earlier 9X concepts, the 9-X BioHybrid also demonstrates the potential for ultra-efficient power from a 200 hp (147 kW), 1.4-liter BioPower turbo engine backed by GM�s next-generation Hybrid system. Projected combined cycle CO2 emissions of just 105 g/km on E85 fuel are testimony to the promise of this package  

With its �turbine� wheels placed at all four corners, minimal bodywork overhangs and an extended roof line, the proportions of the three-door Saab 9-X BioHybrid bring a dynamic, new dimension to conventional compact �hatchback� looks.
The smooth �fuselage� bodywork, now without any visible handles or door mirrors, the bold �wraparound� window graphic and deep front grille are all themes inspired by the Aero X coup� concept shown at Geneva two years ago.
The car�s distinctive �shooting brake� silhouette and rear functionality are developed from the 9X multi-role concept shown at Frankfurt in 2001. �You could say we designed this car from back to front, �says Lo. �The shape of the 9X is right for a car of this size, and the longer roof line helps the aerodynamics as well as providing more rear headroom and interior space.�
