The week starts with a good news from Sweden. Peripherals are also about NEVS - and the remaining 100 vehicles, which are completed or converted in the factory to sell them on the Swedish market. But first and foremost it's about responsibility for vehicles and the brand, and about things that are good for us in everyday automotive life.
Quite a few observers wondered last week who would acquire the last 9-3 from NEVS. The situation of the company is not only unclear in the medium term; are the sedans available for sale at all? An urgent question is the warranty processing. And behind it could be a big question mark.
Orio AB = Saab responsibility!
The question has now been resolved. Some weeks ago, Orio AB had already acquired the tools for the production of original spare parts for all ever produced Saabs from NEVS; Now you also take responsibility for the built during the NEVS era vehicles.
For warranty and service on the 2014 Saab 9-3 sedans is since the beginning of the month Orio AB; NEVS has paid an amount to the company in Nyköping to cover the possible costs. This is a positive signal for the owners of the 300 Saab 9-3 Aero saloon cars traveling in Sweden. Orio AB is fully responsible for all vehicles bearing the Saab logo, no matter what era of the brand they come from.
The brand has a big name, a long tradition, 1 million vehicles are on every street in the world every day. The responsibility is not low. Orio takes the commitment seriously. The fact that this is a good and cautious way to handle shows not only the assumption of service and warranty for the 2014er vehicles.
In Sweden you can currently experience a story about lived brand responsibility. Orio is Saab, more than ever. On Interview with Orio CEO Jonas Tegström on the blog clearly shows how to align in Nyköping. With the one exception that there are no new cars, you fill the role completely. The story in Sweden - it's about customer satisfaction and how we can have Saab driving pleasure for as long as possible - we will also tell on our blog as soon as pictures and approval are available.
