Is something changing in the Saab legacies in Trollhättan? NEVS may be moving towards a change of ownership, CEO Stefan Tilk lets know. The company has concrete proposals from industrial investors. One is currently in dialogue with Evergrande, it is about the approval of the sale. And: a solution is approaching.
Will NEVS get a new owner?
NEVS has been wanting to break away from the Evergrande Group for months, but it is (so far) sticking with the Swedish company. NEVS is important for the automotive plans, one heard again and again from China. In the meantime the situation has changed fundamentally. Evergrande is effectively under state supervision, and administrative committees are preparing the restructuring of the group.
The question of what could happen to the Hengchi car brand and its automotive ambitions is open. Beijing refuses the license for the production-ready vehicles, thereby creating facts. The Hengchi brand is currently on hold. Which doesn't have to stay that way forever.
NEVS CEO Tilk is currently confident that NEVS will complete the change of ownership this spring. He agreed Sveriges Radio. The company recently had to lay off almost half of the workforce, but is now hiring new staff on a smaller scale.
