GM's Raymond J Chess and Saab CEO Jan Åke Jonsson w/Saab 9-4X No. 1 - Click above for high-res image gallery

It's been little over a year since Saab unveiled the 9-4X at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, and now the first production example has left the assembly line.

Envisioned when Saab was still under the General Motors umbrella, the 9-4X is based on the same Theta platform as the Cadillac SRX. As such, it's being built not in Trollhättan, Sweden, like other Saabs, but in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.

This first example - an Aero model in Ice Pearl metallic with the 2.8-liter turbo V6 and XWD - carries the chassis number 00001, and will be displayed at Saab's museum in Sweden - after it makes the media rounds, of course. While you're waiting for the 9-4X to hit U.S. dealers in May, check out our galleries below along with the official production announcement after the jump.
