Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions from military defence to civil security. With operations on every continent, Saab continuously develops, adapts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.

When  Saab  was  founded  in  1937  its  primary  aim  was  to  meet  the  need  for  a  domestic  military  aircraft industry in Sweden. Since then Saab has developed to become one of Scandinavia’s premier defence companies. During the last years the markets in which Saab operates have undergone significant changes, with decreased defence budgets in the western world and an increased awareness about changed global threats. As a result Saab has expanded within the civil security field as well as in Air Traffic Management. The CEE region is an important region and in Czech Republic Saab has around 140 employees. The country is considered as a base, enabling expansion of the business into neighbouring Central and Eastern European countries. One of the largest programs is of course the Gripen fighter, in operational service within the Czech Air Force and the Hungarian Air Force. Both countries have decided on prolongation of the current leasing for another 10 years.

Saab’s  most  important  markets  today  are  Europe,  South East Asia,  Brazil   and  the  US.  Saab  has  around 13,000 employees. Annual sales amount to around SEK 24 billion, of which research and development account for about 20 per cent of sales.

We are looking ahead – to the next 100 years of the BMW Group.

At the BMW Group, we regard every day as a new opportunity to challenge ourselves and to excel. At our official centenary ceremony on 7 March 2016, we deliberately chose to look forward to the future: how will people move about 30 years from now? Obviously, no one can predict precisely how our mobility behavior is going to develop. However, those who do not try to imagine the future will simply not have one. We are presenting our ideas for mobility of the future with our vision vehicle, the BMW VISION NEXT 100.

This vehicle combines coupé-type sportiness with the dynamic elegance of a sedan – but rather than being an anonymous transport machine, it is a highly customised vehicle that is perfectly tailored to suit the driver’s changing needs.

Driver-vehicle interactions are managed by Alive Geometry; Boost and Ease modes offer a choice of driver-controlled or vehicle-controlled operations, and the interior of the vehicle changes to suit the mode of travel. In Boost, the entire vehicle focuses on the driver, offering the support needed to maximise the driving experience – for instance by indicating the ideal driving line, steering point and speed. Ease mode sees the interior transform: the steering wheel and centre console retract; the headrests turn to the side, and the seats and door trim merge to form a single unit so that the driver and front-seat passenger can turn towards each other.

 In the future, one thing will be in ever shorter supply: time. But connectivity will become increasingly commonplace, and technologies will learn to learn from people. Future mobility will connect every area of people’s lives. And that’s where we see new opportunities for premium mobility.

After its world debut, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 will go on a symbolic World Tour entitled “Iconic Impulses.” stopping in China, the UK and the USA. After its Asian premiere in Beijing, it will travel to London, where the Vision Vehicles of the BMW Group’s British brands – MINI and Rolls-Royce – will be unveiled. Its last port of call will be Los Angeles, USA, where BMW Motorrad will add its Vision Vehicle to the collection to complete the quartet of brands.

BMW. Sheer Driving Pleasure.
