  • Evergrande is a synonym for Chinese megalomania without measure and goal - especially without a goal ... or is it with the goal of “World Domination”? We had it several times and just gambled away the Chinese future and a better life for 1,4 billion Chinese ...

  • As of today (22.06.20) the deal should be perfect

  • I'm now hopeful that the branch in Trollhaettan is going in the positive direction. The only plant outside China from Evergrande. What is in store for us?

  • It is still unknown whether future vehicles from Trollhättan could be given the status of the former SAAB automobiles. Contemporary drive technologies, clear Nordic design and extensive safety equipment are particularly impressive here.

    With adequate vehicles, Evergrande should then also take care of the recovery of the brand name SAAB - sounds somehow more familiar than Hengchi or another new brand name.

  • This shouldn't be an Evergrande review now, but a question without bias 🙂
    You are right, European thinking is probably out of place.

  • You cannot and must not rate Evergrande by European or Western standards. The rules are different, it's politics. Evergrande will build the largest stadiums in the world in China. Why? Because in Corona times it is a statement of strength. Not by Evergrande, but by the system. Building a completely new, innovative car brand (mobility service provider) is a similar sign and must be taken very seriously.

  • Hopefully the new company will not put together a hatschi (or whatever the name of the vehicle is) with a conventional electric drive.
    Which customers should buy something like this?

  • I am amazed where Evergrande takes the capital from ?!

  • Surprise? It looks different.
    As an avid blog reader it was already foreseeable that NEVS would not get the wheels rolling ... we had years (!) To bring vehicles (age 9-3) and batteries together. Nothing to show off happened.
    I am excited and interested in how things will go with Evergrande.
    Thanks for the info.
