Saab demos BioPower 9-5 in Australia

 

Saab is demonstrating its BioPower in Australia – an ethanol-powered version of the 9-5 car – that can use E85 (85 per cent ethanol fuel) or petrol, in any combination, from the one tank.

This capability allows drivers to use petrol if ethanol isn’t available and means Saab can quickly launch the BioPower for sale in Oz, helping stimulate demand to make renewable fuels, such as E85, commercially available.

By running on E85 Saab estimates that drivers can reduce their vehicle’s fossil fuel carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 per cent.

BioPower is on sale across Europe, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, France and Norway.
