The hockey stick is a automotive design feature seen on all Saab automobiles. It is a C-pillar curve from the base of the rear passenger window that resembles the shape of an ice hockey stick or the Nike swoosh symbol.

The distinctive design cue first appeared on the Saab 92 and was kept in the Saab 93 and Saab 96. When the Saab 99 was launched in the late 1960s it kept this design feature.[1] and has since appeared on most Saab models, including the classic Saab 900, and current models such as the Saab 9-5 and the 9-3 SportCombi[2][3].

Recently, Saab designers have experimented with evolving the styling feature into what has been referred to as reverse hockey stick, where the angle of the rear passenger window extends out toward the rear end instead of curving forward the B-pillar.

The reverse hockey stick design can be seen on the Saab 9-X BioHybrid concept car, expected to go in production as the Saab 9-1 around 2010.
