New Saab 9-5 BioPower Wins Award

Published Date: 9th Feb 2007

BusinessCar Magazine has awarded the Saab 9-5 BioPower car its Editor’s Choice Award, in recognition of Saab Great Britain’s focus on environmentally-responsible motoring.

Tristan Young, Editor in Chief of BusinessCar explains: "The fact that environmental issues are on the agenda for 2007 is no surprise; however, if 12 months ago I had said that one year on green issues would be bigger than duty of care, people would have laughed.  The rate at which this issue is growing within the whole motor industry certainly has been surprising, and now everyone is talking green.  Yet there are precious few businesses going green, and those that do make an effort should be praised."

Young went on to note that "Saab has shown that the technology works and what’s more, not only are the cars cleaner, but they are quicker too," referring to the significant increases in bhp and torque that BioPower variants enjoy compared to their petrol equivalents.

Saab now offers two BioPower cars in the UK, the 9-5 2.0t BioPower and the 9-5 2.3t BioPower, both of which are capable of running on eco-friendly yet potent fuel source bioethanol E85, pure unleaded petrol or any mixture of the two.

When running on bioethanol E85, the cars’ fossil carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are reduced by between 50 and 70 per cent. This is because the CO2 released during driving is cancelled out by the CO2 that is absorbed from the atmosphere during the growing of the crops, through nature’s photosynthesis process.
