Conclusion – Saab Dealer Tour of Austria

The Saab Dealer Tour of France commenced this weekend (make sure you participer à l’événement and take some photos!), hot on the heels of a fantastic tour through Austria.

The team from Saab Austria has sent in the following final update from their very successful and enjoyable trip.


November 9

Saab Oellinger in Enns / Upper Austria

Wednesday morning our tour went on to visit Enns. After the successful tour in Vienna our spirits were high and we were welcomed by a enthusiastic Mr Oellinger, the owner of the dealership. Despite the cold weather approx 50 persons joined to have a closer look at the cars. We did have some good conversations again and some offers were requested from customers.

A visitor and Saab fan showed us his self-created background image for his mobile phone.

We could use this as a motto for our Saab 9-4X and 9-5 SportCombi dealer tour….. (perhaps as a motto for the whole company at this time – SW)

On the way to Tyrol this photo was taken to show our country which is completed with this beautiful car.

After a long drive we arrived in the capital of Tyrol, Innsbruck, in the dusk. The first visitor came out from the showroom as soon as we arrived and couldn’t wait to see the cars.

Shortly before the end of our time there, a visitor from Augsburg, Germany, arrived with his Saab 9-5 SportCombi, which was tuned by Hirsch. He welcomed us and said that the journey of 2.5 hrs was quite worthwhile.

November 10

Autohaus Steinhauser, Bregenz/Kennelbach, Vorarlberg

The last day of our successful dealer tour started in Vorarlberg. After a cup of hot tea the first visitor arrived with his Saab 9-5 SportCombi followed by a second 9-5 SportCombi and a 9-5 Sedan at the dealership.

Autohaus Gerster, Dornbirn, Vorarlberg

The last visit of our more than 3.000 km long trip through Austria: the dealership Gerster in Dornbirn, Vorarlberg.

Mr Gerster, the owner of the dealership, positioned his 9-5 Aero Sedan beside the new 9-5 SportCombi. Now a lot of customers could compare both body versions. Some visitors took the opportunity to testdrive the 9-5 Aero Sedan.

We also welcomed some guests from our neighbour country Switzerland

With a little snack the guests were talking about the future, the past and current situation.

We were very happy about the positive outcome of the Austrian dealer tour. After this final visit, we hit the road, heading for Saab Zentrum in Frankfurt, Germany, where we had to handover the cars to our colleagues from France. Their tour will start very soon.

We would like to say thank you to all our visitors and dealers for the tremendous help and the interest shown during this special week!

    1. Joppe, each tour is organised by the country concerned, not by Saab Sweden.  Whether or not it comes to Belgium would be Behermans’ decision to make.

      I haven’t heard any plans for Belgium as yet, but that doesn’t mean they’re not thinking about it or planning it (it’s just that I haven’t heard anything).  Spain will be next, I understand, and I’m still waiting on dates and locations for that one.
