The Swedish car maker Saab doesn’t expect any sales growth for this year according to an interview given by its CEO to Auto,Motor und Sport.

Last year the car maker sold 125,000 cars compared to 133,000 over the same period in 2006. "We expect roughly the same scale for 2008," Jan-Ake Jonsson told the German magazine. "It is our target to sell 150,000 to 200,000 units per year. But in order to reach such annual sales we need the new models," he said.

Saab had said earlier it could reach break-even with annual sales of 180,000 units. Unfortunately the milestone won’t be reached until 2010.
