What was supposed to be a celebratory moment just might not happen at all. The 2009 Geneva Motor Show was supposed to bring the official unveiling of the new Saab 9-3X, but as a quick perusal of the headlines, here on TheDetroitBureau.com, will reveal, the Swedish subsidiary of troubled General Motors Corp. has just filed for bankruptcy. And it’s now anyone’s guess as to what that means, going forward.
For the moment, we’ll cautiously assume that Saab isn’t simply going to shut its doors and turn out the lights. And if it has any future, at all, it will likely follow through with the Geneva reveal.
What that would mean is the debut of a vehicle that, according to a Saab release, “was designed for people with active lifestyles who don’t want a large crossover or SUV.”
