Infrastructure Minister Anna Johansson visited Trollhättan on Friday. She visited GKN and NEVS. GKN is the largest employer of the municipality, NEVS the number two. Both locations are closely linked to historic aircraft construction and industrial history.
GKN was once called Volvo Aero, before Volvo Flygmotor or Svenska Flygmotor AB. Where NEVS is today, planes and cars called SAAB were once built. GKN is still in the aviation business supplying engines to Gripen NG.
After visiting GKN, Anna Johannson was on the test track with the NEVS EV, inspecting the assembly for the next generation of electric motors. NEVS CEO Bergman explained the business plan and investments in the Chinese market.
Interesting, in our view, is the tour of the former Saab factory. I like the view in the halls; the local newspaper filmed the visit.
We see the NEVS EV in the China Trim, still without a brand logo. Probably not coincidentally we discover carefully covered prototypes. They seem to be coupes in short camera pans. What is hidden under the camouflage?
Foreign developments, commissioned work, prototypes of a new (Saab) generation? Good and exciting question. And today no answer, not even a clue. Only one thing is clear: things are moving.
Have fun with Trollhättan TV!
