Saab planning to launch five new models by 2013

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

By the end of 2013, five new models will be launched by Saab. Going on sale later this year is a redesigned 9-5 sedan that Saab hopes will help establish the company the mid-size luxury segment as a legitimate player.

Saab faces many obstacles but it anticipates that the 9-5 will attract more customers with its sleek styling, long wheelbase, and modern interior.

The launching of the 9-5 Estate and the 9-4X crossover is set in 2011. The 9-4X crossover, which is built in Mexico, has the same underpinnings as the Cadillac SRX.

The 9-7X isn't available in Europe but the 9-4X will be. The redesigned 93 will be introduced a year later. The 93 will be available as either a three- or five-door hatchback and it will have a modified version of the Epsilon I platform.

Rather than the parts being sourced from just GM, they will come from different carmakers.

Meanwhile, the much-awaited 92 will be introduced in 2013 and it will have another automaker's platform and boast a style that's inspired by the original 92.

Saab expects to sell 30,000 to 60,000 units each year. Pricing is expected to be 10% higher than the MINI Cooper. [via autocar]
