When Saab definitively closed its doors we were the idea of don’t see any car of the Swedish brand. Attempts by reflotarla were impossible and even the emblem that adorned the models of the signature has disappeared. NEVS (National Electric Vehicle Sweden) is the last signature that has the exploitation rights of the now-defunct Saab 9-3 and it seems that it is fixed idea.
We learned that would issue the model in China battery driven and despite having made a first batch of models, their landing was not total. As indicated by NEVS now it is ready to launch to the market the 9-3 electric. His return to the market is produced by the agreement signed to NEVS with Panda New Energy (the Uber for china) and forces the first to commercialize this model.
At the technical level and design the NEVS 9-3 will be a carbon copy of the defunct Saab 9-3. The main difference lies in a slight redesign front (which does not alter headlights or important parts) and to the definitive loss of the “Griffin,” the mythological animal that served as the emblem of the models of the extinct brand. This loss is important, because without this emblem the models of the brand lost part of its personality. Saab AB, before the fear of losing control over your corporate image decided to withdraw NEVS the right to exploitation.
The place in which it will be made this new
Saab NEVS 9-3 will be the Chinese city of Tianjin. In it the firm has a factory with production capacity of 150 thousand units per year. The adaptation of the factory has been very simple as the platform of the 9-3 has more than a decade of history and its utillería not cost them a fortune. The first customers confirmed are, as we have said above, Panda New Energy and the paper Volant Industry Co.
Will have to see how it turns out this NEVS 9-3 electric for autonomy announced is about 300 kilometers. In addition, at the dynamic level we have our doubts that go on as before, because their platform was designed to count with blocks traditional and not a load of batteries. Time to time, but if there is one thing we are sure of is that in Europe we will not see a model of this brand.
