NEVS 9-3 and 9-3X interiors. (The Saab EV zombies)







I posted a while ago about these cars.

New owner NEVS is "reviving" the old Saab 9-3 sedan and wagon as new EV models for the Chinese market.
EV range is predicted at around 180 miles.
Not bad, but not great...

The sedan looks OK. Of course it's an old design.
But I think they did a good job with the front end. The wagon has aged much better (HERE and HERE)

I was curious to see what they did with the interior.
Knowing it wouldn't be brand new.

I think they did a fine job at updating it.
Really.
The general shape of the dash and console seem the same.
Seats seem new. But the modern bits look pretty good.

I think for an update, it looks fine.

Of course, these are actually Zombies. From a brand that is dead. But not quite....

I really appreciate these photos as I always loved SAAB and dreamed of owing one. As mentioned last time on here, what does SAAB AB have to lose with giving NEVS the rights to use it's name. NEVS in return can always give them money.

I know. This is ridiculous. Saab is still quite a name.

Is that a suede dash? How very 70's.
