From Trollhättan come more, good news! Saab owner National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB has started the dialogue with selected European dealers. The letter from Sweden which we have received has been sent to various regions for several days.

National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB: Letter to Saab Partner
National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB: Letter to Saab Partner

Saab goes a step further in the direction of production start, even though the letter expressly does not specify a binding date. The content is, in short, as follows:

NEVS is examining the construction of selected models of the 2012 Saab 9-3 product range and is in discussion with the suppliers. The dialogue with the 500 partners is going well, even though there is currently no 100% commitment to restart. The first Saab electric car, based on the 9-3, is under development and is expected to launch 2014 early this year. In due course, the platform of the 9-3 will be replaced by a new base based on Phoenix technology.

NEVS 170 employees currently work at locations in Sweden, China and Japan. The letter itself is the first contact, and the recipients who are interested in further dialogue are asked to check their contact details and to update them if necessary.

Once the production start date and product specifications have been determined, the sales and marketing team will continue the dialogue.

As far as the content of the letter. In some markets, the letter was sent a few days ago, in Germany, the action since yesterday. The first feedback from the selected Saab partners is very positive.

The letter is good news for Saab, for the customers and another step forward. It is one of the messages we have been waiting for. So far, 2013 is not bad for our cult brand, and it could go on like this!

  • Good News! The hope for a new car from Sweden (no no OVOLOV 😉) rises!

  • That does not sound too bad!
    That also sounds slowly after that, that you are already far behind the scenes, as was previously known!
    I keep my fingers crossed!

  • Good news and very slowly progressing.

  • Mmm, paper is patient ...

  • This is really good news, I am very positive! NEVS is getting more and more likeable every day!

  • Is that serious? 170 employees (and including China and Japan) ... how should something start there? I do not know the original text from the letter, but if it is worded as above, then doubts arise.

    • NEVS is currently working a lot, and especially in the engineering field, with external companies.

  • A step in the right direction! And working quietly behind the scenes of Troll-City, so what! It's anyway the "infinite" customer addresses at the dealers who should support the restart. And they do not need to be texted in advance! Knowing what a SAAB is worth! And they will certainly, also thanks to the blog, stand by the brand and bring many friends with an interest in a SAAB ... .. Slowly everything will be fine .... An encouraging news weekend!
