Saab restarts production with pre-series electric cars

National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB (NEVS), which acquired the assets of Saab's car operation, has produced a 9-3 saloon that, although it’s currently powered by the carmaker’s former 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, will eventually be all-electric.

Mattias Bergman, acting president for NEVS, said: ‘I am pleased that today we have assembled our first car to verify all the production processes here in Trollhättan. Prior to our decision to start production of Saab cars, we need to finalize a few remaining dialogues to build partnerships with suppliers. We now know that the plant is ready for production.’
