The signs are optimistic! Swedish print media expect a restart of the Saab plant in Trollhättan, depending on the magazine, in September or October. And the mass of automotive Internet portals are already writing as if new vehicles were rolling out of the factory every minute. Too soon, it is not so far! Everything seems to be developing positively at Saab 2.0, as our view of the fence shows.
Because the first photo evidence that something is really happening has so far been lacking. To this day ... and here is the picture we have been waiting for a long time. Vehicles have appeared on the site of the former test and testing workshop, which can be classified as new cars based on their routing slips on the windows. Since the new owners made the area fairly opaque, and security is humorless anyway, only pictures from the moving vehicle were possible. And our photographer doesn't want to see his name published here either. A wish that we naturally respect.
What we see are some new Saab 9-3 sports suits - an indication that NEVS has already produced the pre-series or is in the middle of the process. If the schedule in the media is correct - and there is a lot to be said for it - then we have the first pictures of the new vehicles from another era in the history of Saab. In addition to the 9-3 sports combinations, there were also limousines on the premises, which can also be classified as new cars.
According to interviews, the 9-3 new edition will only differ in details from the predecessor. A modified hood, which is due to pedestrian protection, a modified radiator grille. In the interior, small changes should make the ambience more valuable. Of course, as always, official confirmation is pending. Everything is reserved for the first press conference for the restart, at which the new COO will also be presented. According to the TTELA interview with Saab 2.0 press spokesman Mikael Östlund, negotiations are taking place with several potential applicants.
Everything in the green at Saab 2.0? At least you're on the right track, and the fever curve is increasing weekly. Swedish Saab dealers, who will join Saab 2.0 as partners, want to know more details. According to their information, the start of production will take place in October, and the first new vehicles will go into customer hands later this year. Happy Sweden! Saab indeed has 9 life. At least!
If that's not good news!
