Saab is fighting for survival, but there's light at the end of the tunnel as the 9-4X has been launched in the United States.

The first vehicle was sold over the weekend and Saab has already received orders for one hundred more. That doesn't sound like much, but Saab only sold 323 vehicles in June (in the United States) so they'll take every buyer they can get.

As we have previously reported, the 9-4X is priced from $34,205 and features a 3.0-liter V6 with 265 PS (195 kW / 262 hp) and 302 Nm (223 lb-ft) of torque. A high-performance Aero is also available for $48,835 and it has a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 that develops 300 PS (221 kW / 296 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.
