  • I got to know Mr. Schuhmacher personally at the Saabtour in Leipzig and I am glad that he continues to be so committed to the brand. As Saab driver, these activities can only encourage Saab to stay true and we know that our current vehicles will continue to roll for a long time can.
    Nevs is a different chapter.

      Maybe NEVS should instead of desperately trying to revive the old 9-3er, stretch the time to production start something and start with models on the PHOENIX basis.

      In any case, you could rely on the now powerful after-sales operation.

    Thanks for the very latest information!
    And my congratulations to Mr. Schuhmacher as CEO of the subsidiary.
    No matter what comes or not, the supply for all Saabs in our hands is secured!

    Greetings to the community!

    I did not follow how other car brands like Rover were discontinued, but I can hardly understand that after a bankruptcy such “effort” is only made for the spare parts area.

    However, one says yes that you can hardly earn anything with car sales, the workshop utilization brings the money. Perhaps there is more money to be made from repairs than Saab can afford.

    In any case, I'm happy if it continues to have spare parts and maybe even some other accessories and software updates for my 9-5er SC. Always more
    a reason to take him out of the leasing 😉

    Sounds good and is at least once again something positive.
    So “we” will definitely have a decent supply for a few more years.
    (maybe I will find a seal for the driver door frame of my 9-5 SC somewhere) 😉

    Good news for the SAAB community and the SAAB future!

    Hats off to the performance. Rebuilding something is not easy. Good for us SAAB driver!

    @ Joachim: What has Mr. Schuhmacher to do with NEVS? Nothing ! Therefore he can not and does not have to explain anything. If there is something to report, NEVS has to do that for itself. And what has been heard so far is probably known to all users. Namely nothing else.

    • blank

      Namely, nothing else is not quite right - but seriously: Does Mr. Schumacher really only want to concentrate on after sales? It can't actually be.

      I'm assuming that due to the purchase of SAAB (at least the parts that are available in addition to SAAB parts), there should also be a small connection between a former Country Director of SAAB and the new owners - after all, Mr Schuhmacher does not work at the Otto shipping!

        Is the best news for a long time. Setting up a subsidiary is a step into the future and speaks for itself. If the tapes were to be used in Sweden during the summer, powerful structures would be available. Mr. Schuhmacher will not want to tell us anything before. As Tom says, wait and drink tea

          People without any flow of information as to whether conventional models should definitely be produced, it is not possible - SAAB drivers who are planning a new acquisition (like me) want to know whether there will be supplies next year. If there is no further information here, many people in my position who are currently buying would probably strike elsewhere and thus get lost for Trollhättan new car buyers.

          With the appropriate information regarding the further production of conventional models, one would still be able to wait - a little planning is really necessary when buying a car!

            "... If there is no further information here, many people in my situation who are currently buying would probably strike elsewhere and thus get lost for Trollhättan new car buyers ..."

            Well, that will work!

            You can not enforce information or look to the future!
            If you can not or do not want to wait, you have to take care of something else, so what?

  • blank

    All well and good - in the course of time, however, I would have liked Mr. Schuhmacher to say a few words about Trollhättan and the NEVS situation or to give an outlook on further plans for further SAAB automobile production.

    Information in this respect, I think (probably not alone) for too thin.

    One should assume that the managing directors of the newly founded companies have at least a little more information than the “normal” SAAB driver - can you now plan to buy a new 9-3 with optional equipment in the foreseeable future or is there anyway only SAAB electric automobiles? So still questions about questions….

    Many greetings from the Hanseatic city of Hamburg (in the hope that finally “butter will be given to the fish”)
