TV: View into the workshop

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, yet without the brand logo. It is probably not entirely by chance that we discover carefully covered prototypes. When the camera pans, they seem to be coupes. 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!

  • Even if I am now the "spoilsport":
    In December 2013 there was such a “press conference” with political celebrities. Most blog readers also know what came after ...
    Factual: In Trollcity these days they met at NEVS for the press conference. OK then.
    I really don't know what that means. There was also a moving e-car in 2013. Whether the bills for the current activities will be paid is not clear from the press conference. NEVS does not lure me out from behind the stove with this information ... There must (!) More information! The heart is warm with the SAAB, NEVS ... ???

  • Is it positive that something is moving. That's where NEVS first and foremost has to put a product on the market. If that necessarily has to be in China, for my sake. The main thing is for us sometime vehicles from Troll Town!

  • Good idea!

    AERO sounds to me almost as much as SAAB as SAAB itself.
    Please name it AERO, if available and if SAAB is not.

  • Possibly ... I would prefer the name AERO which is shorter (four letters) and also has longer SAAB history? But I rather would like to see the SAAB logo on the bonnet. Do you have more background info?

  • If NEVS tries to leave the front like that, then it looks like SAAB, but it has more of DACIA with the half-round in the middle.
    Hope that there is a solution soon and the cars look like SAAB and are also labeled.

  • Too bad: / ... but understandable
    Although I'm curious ... is it about the facelift planned for 2014?

  • This is also possible. NEVS has a facelift for the 9-3, which was leaked very briefly on the Internet. The pictures were quickly removed, unfortunately we can not show it.

  • The camouflaged vehicles in the background look more like normal 9-3 to me. The headlights also look like the current ones, but there seem to be A, B and C pillars painted black ... maybe. is it a real facelift….

  • Father SAAB AB kill little griffin kid, I'm sending this for reborn new Swedish brand Phoenix cars
    what's new logo but use DNA old good Saab

  • NEVS = they do what. Only it is sad to see the EV drive without SAAB lettering. Also, apart from a few vehicles in the background, nothing can be seen of SAAB. Is SAAB coming back? Is there a chance?

  • Very interesting! It is moving and that is the most important thing.
    Thanks for the information. You become curious when you see the pictures.
