NEVS sells the rights to 9-3 to Turkey. On the platform, a new, national car project will emerge, which should differ in design from what we know. Through cooperation with the state Tübitak Further 100 jobs will be created in the Stallbacka.
I am at this point, as usual, a bit baffled. Another partner, not from China this time. The 9-3 is for Trollhättan past, which was not to be expected. The blog is written from a fan perspective, and so the question is: will that keep us going?
In detail, and because the subject is not very brief, the following happened:
Nevs sells the rights to 9-3, secures contracts for development, production preparation and creates synergies. That brings an undisclosed amount to the till, jobs to Trollhättan. A good deal - from the NEVS point of view.
Passing a Spanish caravan in a race to discover America with a dugout canoe? I would have expected a different decision from Turkey of the year 2015. The new national car will be based on a platform that has already passed 2020 decades at its launch in the year 2.
But governments make irrational decisions when it comes to national pride. Not only in Turkey.
Simple arithmetic task. 500 employees, more 100 are added. Research and development for Dongfeng, Turkey, an electric car and a new plant for China. Additional development work for other partners. In the background the preparations for the order production.
How much energy remains for the master plan - the revival of the Saab brand?
