Saab PhoeniX Concept

Saab's host for their infotainment system comes in the form of the new PhoeniX Concept, inspired by aviation heritage Saab are back on track with their designs. The PhoeniX is the perfect representation of the rise from the ashes which Saab are making a spectacular show to watch.

Hosting Saab's all new Android™ infotainment system 'IQon', The PhoeniX showcases Saab's new direction not only for technology but also for design, claiming it to be 'Aeromotional' (another way to describe, totally cool and kinetic design - inspired by planes)

The rear hosts a jet black panel for the tail-lights to pierce through and the front is sloped and beautiful yet aggressive.  Finish this all off with what seem to be some very eccentric wing mirrors and you have yourself the future of Saab automotive (or should that be Aeromotive?)

Saab Announce New IQon Infotainment System

In a truely beautiful Concept Saab are housing their secret weapon...

An all new interface and infotainment system making the Swedish manufacturer look at their interfaces in a whole new light.

“With Saab IQon, there are no limits to the potential for innovation,” says Johan Formgren, Head of Saab Aftersales and commercial project leader for IQon. “We will be inviting the global Android™ developer community to use their imagination and ingenuity.”

Saab's new infotainment system is based totally on an Android™ platform, opening up to a whole new user experience, featuring in all next generation Saab models.  This means updates to things like sat-nav and music applications, an after-sales experience so personal that you could contact your nearest dealer wherever you are, or even do the shopping while sitting in traffic!  (These things aren't in the press release but I am just suggesting what I think could happen as Mr Formgren has told me to use my imagination haha)

The only close competition to this that we have seen would be Audi's MMI that integrates Google and Wikipedia.  But what Audi don't include is application downloads, which I can only imagine is going to be a selling feature to any Saab customer.
