Toronto, Ontario – Saab will go on sale in Canada for the 2011 model year, with some 20 dealers expressing interest in carrying the brand. General Motors sold the division to Spyker Cars in February 2010.
Saab Cars North America (SCNA) and International Fleet Sales (IFS) are developing the process necessary to import and distribute new Saab vehicles throughout Canada, beginning with the 2011 model year. The cars would go on sale in the fall of 2010.
“International Fleet Sales has experience distributing Saabs since 2005 when we exported the Saab 9-7X to Europe and the Middle East, and now we look forward to working with SCNA to provide Saab vehicles to the Canadian marketplace,” said Mike Libasci, president of IFS. “We also look forward to receiving new product from Sweden in the fall of this year.”
An all-new 9-3X premium crossover joins the Saab lineup of 9-3 sport sedan, 9-3 Sport Combi, 9-3 convertible and all-new 9-5 sedan. Vehicle pricing will be released in the coming months.
Once the Saab dealer infrastructure is finalized, warranty work will be fulfilled through the network.
