NEVS Concepte at CES Asia 2017

It is the first big appearance of NEVS. Today, CES Asia opened its doors in Shanghai. NEVS shows 3 Concepte for the future of mobility. Two of them could go into production next year.

NEVS 9-3 and 9-3X from 2018 in series

The NEVS 9-3 electric car sedan and the 9-3X SUV are already known through pre-published images. New for us is the view into the interior. A first impression: the dashboard is still produced in its basic form in Tidaholm; the ability to design something completely new was therefore limited for the designers.

In contrast to Saab times, the concept cars now have a fully digital cockpit. Judging by the first pictures, it remains in the traditional division with two round instruments and a navigation or multifunction part in the middle. Whether it is a high-resolution, virtual cockpit, as at Audi, for example, is unknown.

In the center console, the screen is larger than what you know from Saab times. The display now uses the maximum possible space, which is indispensable for acceptance in China. Underneath are the controls for the air conditioning and the start button. It remains, and that's a surprise, with a conventional handbrake. At least in the study is the familiar handle. And that's a real surprise with an electric car.

The steering wheel, with multi-function buttons, is a common, fashionable design. A manual intervention in the gear selection (?) Seems possible via the steering wheel. That would not be the norm for an electric car if it went into mass production. The seats could pass through some elements as Saab design, the cladding of the doors is no surprise.

Unfortunately, they have abandoned the legendary Saab air vents in the interior. They have been with us since the days of a Saab 900, and have been developed over and over again. Most recently, we saw them in the Saab 9-5 NG, and they were a sign of continuity there. Whether one discovers elements in the interior of Saab, feels addressed, every viewer has to decide for himself.

NEVS InMotion Concept at CES Asia 2017

While the NEVS 9-3 electric cars are to be produced starting with 2018, the InMotion Concept will probably remain a futuristic study. It's more like a self-driving lounge than a car. A mobility concept for the not so distant future, for the big cities of the world. Autonomous transportation, like NEVS with the InMotion Concept to realize, will take place. Probably faster than we think. In Shanghai, Tianjin, Beijing. But not in Tidaholm.

  • The longer I look at the 9-3X the better I like it. I'm not really on pimped station wagon come along in the SUV look. But side and rear are well done with the 9-3X. Funny, I still find the front. It works arbitrarily, has too much LED on it and the nose is too high.

  • You can still fill the whole caravan with batteries. It cannot be the future.

  • Electric vehicle is apparently the solution, but how the things behave in trailer or Caravanbetreib has not yet said.

  • Wunderbar
    ...... ..

  • I thought this "curve" we can from the logo of Saab in the grill of the Griffin Edition.

  • I think it's interesting how not to overlook a design element, even in the "new" front 9-3, but everything in the "in motion concept" tries to solve everything. Be it in the back, in the front ... on the sides, everywhere.
    In principle, this "guidance" of the curve already allows it, does not look too bad, it's the curve like all of the Griffin Edition Saab 9-3 know.

    Is it too banal? Or very smart ... we will learn that "soon".

  • Both the 9-3 and the 9-3 X are doing very well at the fair - keep it up!

  • Well… .. “adopted”. 😉 😉 😉

    These jets are - at least for me - but just to a Saab with it (just like the turbo) !!!
    Of these were also always div. Fellow travelers excited!

    And the best implemented was to my taste then the 9-5 NG, in which the grille in the dashboard panel was optically even continued - just beautiful!

  • About the "grille" Swedish designers should talk again before the 9-3 (hopefully) comes to Europe, otherwise it would be interesting to know where the start button.

  • "... air vents ... Recently we saw them in the Saab 9-5 NG ..."

    Nanana ... 😉 😉
    In the "Swedish Mexicans" after that they were still available!

    The seats, side paneling and the "selector lever" of the new 9-3, I think not necessarily so bad. The rest on the pictures inside not necessarily.
    (What I, however, never really understand - also with the above-mentioned “Mexicans” and other cars - is why people often like to make two-tone seats with stripes !?)

    At the moment I can not really get warm with the "InMotion Concept".
    (And will such a thing really be used in the future as a "conference room" ????
