For the Lotus-Youngman Chinese, Saab poker is over. This reports today Dagens Industri. The administrators made this decision with regard to existing uncertainties in financial terms. Transactions from China must always be approved by the politically motivated Super Authority NDRC in Beijing.
So the Saab administrators have made a good decision. For in the past, transactions had always failed at the NDRC. Delays are always programmed in the state bureaucracy and hinder the economic development and stability of the investment.
According to Dagens Industri, another consortium from China, specializing in electric cars, is said to have taken the lead in the race for Saab. It is not just about e-mobility but also about hybrid solutions. There is talk of 100.000 cars per year, which one wants to build in Trollhättan. The unnamed name: Qoros.
This information is inconsistent with what we hear from Sweden. But the administrators pursue a very clever information policy and ignite - once again - smoke candles.
Youngman outside, that's the message of the day. Everything else will be seen.
