Saab 9.3: Still not dead...

After almost 7 years, NEVS is finally ready to produce their own version of the Saab 9.3.
As promised, it is an EV.

Although they had shown pictures of much more interesting models a few years ago. 
The real thing pictured here is just the same car as ever. The one Saab starting producing back in 2002.

The specs don't seem terrible. It has a 221 miles range. 
And the price seems to start at around $25 500. 

Not sure how much NEVS paid for the Saab assets, but it doesn't look like they are using much of what they got...

"Zombie Saab" lives on... For now.

I had a 2003 Saab 9-3 with this body style. Loved that car. Hard to believe it's a 17 year old design.

Old design, nothing special about it. Who in the right mind would bring it back? It is not some kind of classic.

I'd rather have a Zotye.

This one is supposedly their "fleet" EV, sold to taxi drivers and local governments. The real new car should be out next year.

NEVS and Koenigsegg just signed a partnership. It should be interesting to see what they come-up with.
