In the last few days, pictures from different countries have been found in my Saab mailbox ... from where our readers go on vacation. From snow and ice, from Asia. They will appear on the blog soon. Reuters also provides images today. From Beijing. From the new NEVS headquarters and from the NEVS EV.
In the days before the turn of the year, press day was at NEVS. Not in Trollhättan, but in China. KJJ displayed its new Scandinavian-style headquarters. And the NEVS EV for China, which is based on the 9-3 and 2017 should be on the market.
The Reuters article is also worth reading for those not interested in EV. It gives an idea of the dynamics with which the EV market in China is developing, and also the rapid development with which the Chinese part of NEVS wants to participate in sales. The limousine for China is not the only option, an electric minibus and an MPV should roll out of the new NEVS plant in Tianjin in 2016. Surprise…
The work itself should already be 50% completed; in China, some things are happening at a breathtaking pace. NEVS meets an emerging market at the right time. My opinion on this, in detail and from a Saab blogger point of view, will follow after the weekend.
And Trollhattan? The development is less spectacular, at least to the outside. NEVS continues to recruit staff, and the pre-series for the NEVS EV is working at full speed. 19 vehicles were completed by the end of the year and are required for licensing and testing in the China market.
