Most Swedish police cars are either Volvos or SAABs, with the same livery all over Sweden. In later years, due to the 2010 bankruptcy of SAAB, the use of other brands, such as Volkswagen Passat and BMW 5-series, has become more common.
But, as well as many other countries in the world use SAAB cars in Police services.
Below, a look at just some of the Saab models that are used in police departments around the world:
Saab 9-3 Aero 2.8 V6 Flying Squad – DC
One of only two marked Saab 9000’s that Strathclyde had. these had the Aero 2.3 Turbo engine but with CD base interior. Sadly they didn’t last long, both being replaced by V registered S70 T5’s. This was TM38, the Group 4 car at Dumbarton, and is taken in exactly the same spot as the Dunbartonshire Commer Accident unit, just 20 years or so later!

Senova D sedan from China’s Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co. or simply BAIC, and under its body shell, elements of which will likely remind you of several other cars, is the platform and engine technology from the previous generation Saab 9-5, the rights for which the company acquired from General Motors in 2009.
