Last year Saab Automobile produced more cars than ever before. The Trollhättan plant made 114,120 cars; 70,926 9-3 Sport Sedan and 43,194 Saab 9-5.

“We met an increasing demand from many markets as they reached higher sales volumes,” says Lars Danielson, Vice President Manufacturing at Saab Automobile. “A new production record like this is a positive development and brings a feeling of self confidence to the whole company.”

Saab Automobile also began producing new 9-3 Convertibles at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria, where almost 10,000 were manufactured last year. More than 6,000 old model convertibles were also produced in Nystad, Finland. The total manufacturing output last year for all locations came to 130,034 cars.

“We are counting on higher sales volumes 2004, so we can foresee a new record being set this year too,” adds Lars Danielson with an air of confidence.
