Saab 9-4X BioPower ConceptThis little Saab gets more powerful when running green. We take a first look from the 2008 Detroit auto show.
>> [ music ] ^m00:00:07 And when you tell the world that you're born from jets you should look like it and say all the GM Saab's have, but this one seems to go back to that mantle. This is the Saab 94X Biopower. The Biopower part of its so interesting, 2 liter, in line 4, turbo charged, it'll run on gas and do 240 something horse power, but you give it E85 it can crank up the boost dramatically get closer to 300 horse power. Unfortunately it also lowers the MPG 20, 25 percent. So interesting combo here depending on what kind of fuel you've got and what kind of results you're looking for. One vehicle can deliver both. Now the packaging as you can see, is really good looking. It's very slim and stealth and seems to have more of a distinct language to it. They also partnered up with Solomon the ski maker on this concept to show a couple of interesting ski technologies, ways to carry your skis and gear, plus a warming container below the floor for your snow encased boots. 94X what really is happening here is an investigation of a power train that can run 2 ways on 2 fuels.
