2011 Saab PhoeniX Concept

March 3rd, 2011 by By auto # Saab

The Phoenix Saab Concept design features and technology radiate powertrain with an electric motor that is innovative thinking very brilliant in shaping the next generation of cars from Saab. But more than looking like a Saab in the traditional sense, it likely outlines the future of the company’s direction. Sure some of the more flamboyant concept-only elements will fall away, but the core thesis of flowing lines, aerodynamic slipperiness, and muscular proportion could remain. We’re looking forward to see what’s next in the production plan. The PhoeniX embraces teardrop, ‘liquid metal’ forms and a dramatic jet canopy-inspired glasshouse that gives fresh expression to Saab’s signature ‘wraparound’ and translucent ice-block design themes. The clean, muscular shape enables an exceptionally low drag co-efficient of just 0.25cd and also explores the potential for airflow management through the use of distinctive, side-mounted ‘winglets’.

Based on a new architecture which will underpin the next Saab 9-3 model, the PhoeniX introduces ‘aeromotional’ design: a visual evocation of the aerodynamic design principles and passion for innovation that inspired the creators of Saab’s first car, the iconic Ursaab.

The Saab PhoeniX deploys an innovative driveline, with an electrically-driven rear axle mated to a sophisticated 200 hp, 1.6-liter petrol turbo engine driving the front wheels. The result is an intelligent, hybrid all-wheel-drive capability that enhances driving pleasure while reducing fuel consumption. Combined cycle fuel economy and CO2 emissions are projected to be 56.5 mpg and 119 g/km. The engine is supported by Saab’s innovative eXWD system. It comprises a rear drive unit housing a 25 kW (34 hp) electric motor/generator powered by a small battery pack. Regenerative braking is used to sustain the battery’s charge.
