Saab Biopower Saab has become the first car maker to introduce a flex-fuel vehicle in Australia.

Saab officials say the BioPower program will help them gauge demand for ethanol powered vehicles and renewable fuels in Australia, even though E85 is not yet commercially available in the country.

According to AutoWeb Australia, Saab introduced the vehicles this week at a promotional event in Queensland and they will now be “loaned to media, government, industry and fleets for real world evaluation. Vehicles are already scheduled to join the fleets of the Queensland Government and ethanol producers such as the Manildra Group.”
