Saab Will start to produce EV's.
200 ev's are preordered and then starts the production of EV's so that everybody can buy one.
National Electric vehicle Sweden (nevs) is the New owner of Saab automobile, they are now making petrolcars but will then focus on EV's.
The EV that Saab soon will start to produce is going to get the latest and best batteries.
The batteries will be made of litiumironfosfate with density of 146 Wh/kg.
The eSaab will also get a new Electric driveline.
And Saab has done about 100 updates to the chassi and body structure.
The Saab got 5 stars in EuroNCAP.
It will be a very good electric car..

It's a shame how Saab has had to fight for it's survival over the last few years but hopefully this is the light at the end of the tunnel. I've signed up to your newsletter as I'll be interested to see how this develops, thanks for the link.

Hello,

Welcome to Speak EV and thanks for joining in here, good luck with the "new" Saab.

Will the "eSaab" be priced competitively with EVs, what is predicted to be the "real world" range of the electric models?
I don’t want another competitively priced EV from Saab like Volkswagen have given us with the STITCH-UP
I accept that I must be patient to see the technology advance but I am inpatient to see an EV competitively price to a comparable automatic ICE car which is what VW could give us right now and those initial 250 would been snapped-up EV lovers like me.
I hope Saab will get real and move the game on.

Announcement last week SAAB website from nevs

http://www.saabcars.com/en/news/D9604345F2C271EA:

Information from Nevs

Nevs hereby clarify that the company is not insolvent. The company does not have enough liquid cash as today to pay all outstanding debt but Nevs’ assets are larger than its debt. Nevs today cannot say exactly when, but Nevs’ suppliers will get paid.

During the summer, the dialogues with the two major vehicle manufacturers have continued and developed in a positive direction. It is a thorough evaluation process that is still ongoing, and the discussions have not been finalized yet.

After the funding is secured, and after that Nevs business plan is updated together with its new partners, Nevs will be able to make the decision on when the Trollhattan factory can resume its production.

The company whose representative filed a bankruptcy petition has informed Nevs today that they will withdraw the case after the information they have got regarding the ongoing dialogues.
