It's only the world's greatest advertising opportunity. Film him with the Saab, highlight that he went 1 mil miles, say something like "Peter xx drive his Saab one million miles without any major repairs. As a reward, we gave him a new one asked him to do it again". I can't believe they'd be stupid enough to miss an opportunity like this. Even if we know that a newer one won't go the distance like his 900, the public doesn't. Some marketing genius probably decided that it might encourage people to hold on to their cars longer.
