SAAB News: Saab sale completed this week (?)

The local newspaper in Trollhättan is one of the serious and Saab-friendly media. Usually you are always very well informed. Already this week, Saab Automobile AB could have found a new owner so they write today. They are waiting for a statement from the administrators coming soon.

After 5 months, the wait phase will come to an end. The tension rises and the question is not only who buys the group but also whether the promised complete sale is completed. Which products is the new owner planning? Electric cars, hybrid - or rolling the Saab 9-3 Griffin again from the tapes? The future is exciting.

I'm traveling a lot this week and I'm working hard with interesting projects. Because not only at Saab it is exciting. The items are therefore a little shorter - updates may be delayed. But we stay tuned.

  • That would be my dream. Here in the morning to read the coffee that SAAB is saved. Then a few months later on my favorite blog reports on the latest SAABs. Hopefully it will become reality soon.

  • It's about time, too. The tension, I believe, can not be greater anymore who it will be now. And it will also remain exciting what the new owner will do with Saab. 2 to 3 or even 4 years I would like to drive my 9-3 SC anyway. Let's see if it`s seamless with a new one.

    • ... .than then in the meantime, many buyers would have to find a new kind of Saab. And, with good reason, I have my not entirely unfounded doubts.

  • The news that is currently ghosting through the web does not sound that great to me.

    • Sounds more like the Chinese / Japanese - and as if the Indians did not bid enough.

      But I think, wait is the best. In the past few months, many buyers have been wandering through the media, which were supposed to be in the most promising position ... and somehow I find it very hard to believe that NEVS should have established better structures and concepts than Mahindra, or Lotus / Youngman - who have also retired. And last but not least, there is the hope that administrators will choose carefully ... and it makes more sense to sell to an established company than to a newly formed consortium.

      • Apparently, even a not yet mentioned automotive group is involved in the consortium. Another blog is to read that NEVS in Trollhättan would like to build an electric version of a Japanese small car under license. It is to be expected that it still is not mentioned consortium member is a Japanese carmaker. Since then I can already imagine that the administrators decide for an established company like Mahindra

      • People,

        Do you really think that this huge amount of money would have been spent on rebuilding NEVS if the initiators did not get the "green light" for it?

        This was guaranteed everything previously regulated by the administrators - according to my current view
        The whole thing is not even unfavorable for SAAB!

        Greetings from the Hanseatic city of Hamburg

        • I think that with the establishment of NEVS the thing was already sealed. Whether that is good or rather unfavorable for Saab remains to be seen. Is not that much known what NEVS has now with Saab before. For me, however, electric cars and hybrids are at most a supplement in the product range. But I can be wrong and in a few years, Saab is the absolute world's best top address for hybrid vehicles, so how Saab is known today for its turbo technology. However, the new owner should be synonymous with the previous Saab story and also Saab Parts with take over what does not seem to be the case with NEVS
