Saab Automobile

Saab Automobile AB /ˈsɑːb/ is a Swedish car manufacturer. It was formed in 1945 out of Saab AB, “Svenska Aeroplan AB (aktiebolaget)” (English: Swedish Aeroplane Limited), a Swedish aerospace and defence company, when Saab AB started a project to design a small automobile. The Saab 92, Saab’s first production model, was launched in 1949. The parent company merged with Scania-Vabis in 1968, and ten years later, in 1978, launched the Saab 900, Saab’s best-selling model.
