Long halted Saab starting their production again with 9-3 with EV
|   Wednesday, December 04, 2013
Saab was dead for long period with no more production in hand to do. But they are up now for starting once again with new ideas and most popular trend right now ruling the market that is electric cars are also added to their production list. 9-3 model of Saab is the initial model to manufacture for the company to kick off their production to full fledge.

Saab will start their production this week; company's plant resides in Sweden Trollhattan.
Saab started from 1947, but afterwards it is followed by steady decline in their marketing. Saab had very hard time just after starting their company but later on they sold the company to General Motors in 1989. Even the buyers (general motors) could not manage the Swedish company properly and they got bankrupt in their last recession. In2010 General Motors sold the Saab brand to Spyker, the Dutch super car producer; in that year Spyker got a bust in the market.

22 percent owner of the Chinese city Qingdao National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) acquired the assets of Saab. NEVS started the company; they bring in 600 former workers and 3,500 workers in total to start the Saab. At first production, NEVS has started with 9-3 petrol form car as production.

They are also willing to start with electric cars sometime in the year. The produced 9-3 petrol car will be sold in Sweden and China first. It's a limited production of 9-3 petrol car so they may even add electric cars in between to maintain the continuity of the factory. They present EV cars in the following year.

Another interesting thing about the company is that the dealer of the company in Dubai is trying to sell all the leftovers at unreasonable prices. NEVS planned to start the firm with a gas powered 9-3 car and afterwards they will introduce EV to the company in the year 2014. They have lots of hope of bringing Saab back on track properly and put it in stable form in the market. They have tried to install all new technologies that are very much in demand and looks are utterly fashionable. As for sale statistics, they are aiming European and Chinese markets first and then they will introduce it into US markets.

The old platform of the Saab's 9-3 will be replaced with all new Phoenix architecture; they are adding very high tech assets to the car. The previous architecture of the car from GM were also Phoenix architecture, they will modify the entire old version with the new one. During bankruptcy which was filed against Saab they were taken up by Swedish-Chinese Company NEVS and they are now running the long halted company.

NEVS wants to bring in electric cars under the brand name, which they have planned to introduce the very next year 2014. For now NEVS didn't disclose the production number but they said the volume for the first batch would be modest.
