Bilsport Sweden is the first magazine ever to name a date for the Saab production launch. The magazine wants to know that on 29. November will be the first production vehicles to roll off the reels in the stablebacka.
All other media conspicuously stick with predictions, or refer to Bilsport.se. There is still no official date from NEVS-Saab, just the good news that the supply chain has been successfully rebuilt. Bilsport also wants to know more about the engine issue - there is still complete silence here. Chinese engines are not supposed to work under the NEVS-Saab hood, as was sometimes suspected, but known solutions and possibly also engines from BMW. Mind you - possibly! Just speculation or deliberately scattered indiscretion? I am holding back with a prognosis.
A look at the calendar shows that November 29th is a Friday. My bet goes against it. If I wanted to start production, I wouldn't do it before the weekend. It would be more likely to start on a Monday, at the start of the working week. Let's see…
Anyway, whether we see running bands in November or December, the timing is secondary. NEVS-Saab would have made its announcement true and started production in the autumnal calendar. Saab finally gets going again, that's important. The times are exciting!
