Saabosphere – links we liked this week

First things first – I’m looking forward to seeing some photos from France today, as French Saab fans gather in Paris in a show of support for the company. This is an initiative of Saab France as well as supporter websites, Saab Actu, Saablog-In and saabsunited.fr. It’s wonderful to see gestures of support like this, done the right way. I know from a few messages here and there that some other gatherings were in the planning stages and if they do end up happening, please do let me know. I’d be happy to pass the word around so that interested […]

Saab Dealer Tour España – Barcelona and Gerona

The first two stops on the Saab Dealer Tour of Spain were in Gerona and Barcelona. We’ve got a gallery of images from those stops below. Click. Spirits are high amongst the attendees and Irene from Saab España even passed along a little story from the Barcelona stop: I was talking to some customers (a family) in Barcelona and they told me that they don’t have a car at all right now. They ordered a new Saab 9-5 three months ago, and are still waiting. Their old car (an old 9-3) “died”, so they were looking for an alternative but […]

Why the Saab dealer tours have been a great success

I received an email this morning from a Saab blogger in France named Remi. He runs a site called Saab Actu and he took part in the Paris leg of the Saab’s Tour de France last weekend. It’s emails like this that give me such a boost as a Saab person, knowing that grass-roots efforts like the Dealer Tour are reaching people in a very personal way. One-to-one opportunities to see our new vehicles up close are very important at a time when support for our company is so crucial. I get the chance to attend the event in Paris […]
