At the Paris Motor Show unveils the Saab 9-X Air. This completes Saab claims to be the family 9-X concept cars off. And a convertible could not be missed. A homeless variant actually accounts for 25 years part of the range of the Swedish manufacturer (Saab 900 Convertible debuted as a prototype in 1983 and went into production in 1985). Succession seems assured because of the latest generation will on average annually 16 000 units were sold. And if this 9-X Air is a harbinger, Saab does not seem to give in to the pressure of the metal folding roofs. The creation dissociates itself from conventional convertible design by incorporating prominent rear pillars.

Supporting the flat folding roof that Saab 'Canopy Top' baptized. They also serve as anchor points for the curved glass and recessed rear screen. Because of the high flanks of pulling the ears of the passengers remains the 9-X Air almost completely draft-free. And with the roof closed model has a coupé roofline. The roof folds but not driven. The development principle is that of a targa top. And Saab looks something in, because it promptly asked for a patent. Its operation is fully automatic and the roof is folded into three small compartments under a cover between the rear seat and the rear trunk. The rear screen between the buttresses retracts automatically into the underside of the lid so that the roof can fold itself. Then the rear again moves upwards so that the cabin is fully lined with glass if the roof is gone. Saab opted not for a conventional tailgate.

Under the tail moves from a large storage. Which is sufficient for two golf bags. The interior is derived from that of the 9-X BioHybrid. That is the driver-oriented and serves makes him the information in a manner reminiscent of the cockpit of an airplane. Saab makes every opportunity to put his past as an aircraft in the paint. The zone information for the driver includes the top of the door molding. A floor console allows the brand again omitted. The zone is a flat arc-shaped surface in which a row of five display screens is embedded. Sony Ericsson went along with Saab from the globe and created a wireless connection with one or more personal devices.
The manufacturer even says that the GSM can be programmed as a car key. For example, a remote control is unnecessary and you must again less to lug around. Saab developed the 9-X Air in parallel with the 9-X BioHybrid. Its powertrain is no surprise. Under the hood sits a small 1. 4l petrol engine that uses the latest technology. The block is blown by a turbo, lust E85 fuel (which consists of 85% bioethanol and 15% conventional petrol) and also makes further use of hybrid technology. Its power is 200 hp, and that is sufficient for the 9-X Air in 8.1 count to 100km / propel you while CO2 emissions are reduced to 107g / km.
