Friends in Sweden, those with a Saab background, are sure that the cult brand will make its comeback this year. The optimism is growing from month to month, which does not seem unfounded. Saab 2.0 press officer Östlund fired these positive expectations and gave the "... late autumn" as the date.
In the Swedish edition of the Auto-Motor-Sport there was therefore a short article on Saab development yesterday. “Maybe you can buy a new Saab 9-3 in the fall,” they write there. Which I would like, but seems a little too optimistic. Because Saab 2.0 owner NEVS has not yet commented on which markets should be supplied with priority.
Press chief Östlund is quoted in the online magazine Just-Auto. In the text there, the start with diesel and gasoline engines comes to the fore. Which, in turn, is speculative, because the official sources have not yet commented on the engine variants. Informed circles consider it unlikely that the diesel engines from the long-dissolved Fiat / GM partnership will make a comeback.
Saab 2.0 owner NEVS has announced its intention to use the Saab Festival in Trollhättan as a platform to bring the assembled fans and local international press representatives up to date. Which is certainly the best possible stage for the emerging media interest. As always, it is important for us to stay relaxed, the Saab Festival is getting closer and closer. The news from Sweden has been getting better and better for some time, the long wait seems to be worth it. And Saab 2.0 has learned from the mistakes of the past and uses as a mouthpiece, it seems, not only the fan blogs, but increasingly the power press.
