First, they still want to keep producing an updated version of the old 9-3. A car that came out about 13 years ago. So good luck with that.
NEVS claims that model will "generate the cash it needs to bring out four more models".
Again, good luck.
They say the design will be updated. What it will need by 2017 will be an all new design.
Not sure what they mean by "updated".
All new designs are based on the Phoenix platform Saab was working on while they went under.
The company also claims that all these new models will be sold in the US.
All of these will be electric only.
Cars sold in Europe and the US will be built in Sweden. While the ones for China will be built locally.
It all sounds good, I must say. And these drawings above look pretty nice. Really.
(Better than what Saab was working on as the "next 9-3")
There was a time, just a few years ago, when people were laughing at the idea of brand new Volvos under Chinese ownership. Look at them now.
So even though sarcasm is very tempting here, I am actually pretty optimistic about this.
A Saab rebirth and re-invention as a modern "all electric" car company.
What do you think?
