Will there be cars from Trollhättan again soon? Automobile production is getting closer, claims Thomas Hausch, COO of Sono Motors. Without naming a specific date, of course, but now everything should go very quickly. As good as that sounds, it leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
According to the latest plans, Sono Motors would have wanted to start production in the old Saab plant in autumn 2021. In spring 2022, larger numbers could have rolled out to customers. The pandemic is also delaying planning here, as Thomas Hausch told us P4 Väst notifies. But NEVS and Sono Motors would like to concentrate on delivery as quickly as possible. You guarantee that.
In fact, Sono Motors has only just completed or under construction two prototypes that show the final design of the Sion. The technical prototypes required for homologation are not yet in sight. It is unclear whether these will be produced by Sono Motors' German partner or in prototype construction at NEVS. What would be possible and useful.
The status of the old Saab factory is also open. Likewise, the question of how Evergrande Auto evaluates contract manufacturing in Trollhättan. The contracts were signed before Evergrande joined, and since then that Self-image and the orientation at NEVS has changed significantly.
Koenigsegg's plans speak for the start of production of the Sion this year and the revitalization of the plant in general. Components for the a Gemer will also come from Trollhättan. Its production, which is already largely sold out, will start in 2022 in the expanded plant in Ängelholm.
