Saab 9-X BioHybrid 2008 Geneva Motor Show
Not only demonstrating Saab’s future in design, the 9-X concept also pioneers the potential for ultra-efficient and powerful BioPower engines.
Optimised for E85 fuel, the small, 1.4-liter BioPower turbo engine generates a substantial 147kW on E85 and an even more impressive 280Nm.
When running on standard petrol, the Saab 9-X concept will return a combined cycle of just 4.9-litres per 100km, however using E85 will increase this figure to 6.4-litres per 100km.
Performance is modest although impressive for an engine of its size, covering zero to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds on E85.
