GM has really treated SAAB badly, which is such a shame as SAAB has some excellent engineering teams and are leading the biofuels car sales in Sweden, a test market for biofuels. In Sweden you can fill up on biofules in most cities now. See this map for biofuel stations in Sweden: http://www.miljofordon.se/tanka/

SAAB's 9-5 Bio power represented nearly 1/3 of the "green cars" sold in Sweden in 2006, 50% more than the closest competitor, Ford Focus with E85 engine. But SAAB really needs a plug-in hybrid E85 car in Europe. It isn't exactly like other GM cars sell like hotcakes over here and SAAB engineering is just far superior to GM's US cars.
