Saabcars Website Open

National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB has recently updated the Saab website to include information about the company executives, Saab's planned product range, and a news page.

Currently, NEVS is "extending and further developing the Saab brand in passenger cars with a new visual identity founded on Scandanavian heritage, where the four distinctive seasons, long distances and extreme road conditions have shaped the Saab passenger cars." The company has signed a licensing agreement with Saab AB to use the Saab brand for its products and services, and the Saab wording will be featured in dark grey or silver on future products. For more information, and to also view the "four season" logos, visit www.saabcars.com.

Victor Muller at Teknikens Värld Talks Saab Phoenix Concept

Saab Phoenix ConceptTake one look at the image to the left leaked by Car and Driver and we're sure you're going to want to head right over and see their photos and writeup of the new Saab Phoenix Concept. After all, this is the first glimpse we are getting at the work of new Saab design chief Jason Castriota. This concept is going to be every bit as important to the future design direction of Saab as was the AeroX to the current and outgoing models. But after you're done reading about it and reacting (positively or negatively) to the photos, you should also check out the enlightening new interview with Victor Muller over at Teknikens Värld which took place at Saab's Independence Day celebration that puts the whole thing in context (thanks to Larry West for the heads up). You don't need to understand Swedish to get the gist of what's going on, and Victor himself speaks English in the interview. There's a lot of great information here, and a much better look at the new Saab 9-5 SportCombi than we've seen from the single press photo that's been making the rounds. So head on over to both sites and get a look for yourself!

UPDATE: More photos, suitable for framing, screensavers or desktop backgrounds can be found over at netcarshow.com!
