The current, revolutionary Phoenix platform with which Saab unlocks the top of the automotive industry, the electronic four-wheel drive and the new technology for lighter tank construction, everything was developed by SES. Current software engineering for the new IQon multimedia platform also comes from there for the most part.

SES is a legally independent Saab spin-off and, as you can hear, has a good order book and a considerable list of customers.

If Saab is given the chance, SES could make the parent company more independent from automobile construction and be a profitable, additional pillar. In addition to the profitable spare parts business, Saab would then have a second, “beautiful daughter”.
