GM is prepping the ground for its 100th anniversary celebration tomorrow by announcing two more vehicles that will make their debut at the Paris auto show next month.

The first is a wagon version of the Opel Insignia sedan, shown this summer at the London auto show. The striking new wagon version won't be coming to the U.S. but offers a stylish counterpoint to the VW Passat and Ford Mondeo wagons that are mid-size mainstays in Europe.

The Saab 9-X Air concept shares some of the details of the 9-X concept that's made the rounds at recent auto shows. Only, its two-door body has a cut-down windshield and rakish speedster-esque details that push the idea of an open-top Saab down a market class from today's 9-3 Convertible. A cool green-lit interior is a part of the concept package due at Paris.

The presentation's still going on; stay tuned for photos and more info as soon as we get it in hand. And stay in touch tomorrow as GM celebrates its centennial with a first look at the 2011 Chevrolet Volt.

  1. Why is that VW can sell the Passat wagon in the North American market, but GM can't bring the Insignia wagon here as either a Saturn or simply as an Opel that could be ordered through the Saturn dealer network?
