Geneva launch: Saab hybrid-power XWD Phoenix iX concept

Saab have released details of their Phoenix iX concept, showcasing their future manufacturing goals. It features low drag "aeromotional design," inspired by old-Saab aviation roots, a minimalist Saab IQon infotainment cabin, small-but-200PS-potent 1.6-litre turbo engine powering the front wheels and innovative electric rear wheel drive – making an eXWD all-wheel-drive system – a 2+2 cabin "blending simplicity with technology," butterfly doors and much aerodynamic trickery, enabling the Phoenix to net 56.5mpg and emit just 119g/km CO2. Looks interesting, intelligent technology to us, and keeps the turbocharger and petrol dream alive... yay!
