An exciting press release comes from Sweden. From fall 2020 NEVS wants to produce vehicles for the Munich electric car startup Sono Motors. For Trollhättan, that would mean a few hundred new jobs and, in advance, major investments in the old Saab factory.
In eight years, 260.000 vehicles are to be manufactured, which reports Sveriges Radio regarding NEVS press officer Fryklund. Around 9.800 orders are expected to have been received so far for Sono Motors' first product, the Sion. According to Sono Motors, 43.000 vehicles in 2-shift operation could be produced per year if demand was correspondingly high.
The Munich startup refers to his website already on the Swedish production, on Saab and the historical background. NEVS has not yet received a press release on the new relationship and the first OEM customer in the history of the company.
The production of the first electric car from NEVS in Sweden is expected for the year 2021. However, there is no confirmation.
