There will be no more Saab cars

Upcoming electrified 9-3 to be badged as a NEVS

Read more on:

The Saab name will no longer appear on cars. You might think it has been dead for years. But NEVS, the company that bought the Saab factory, is planning to build an electrified version of the 9-3 from 2017.

Today it announced that car will be badged NEVS and not Saab. The Saab badge reverts to the aircraft company.

NEVS – National Electric Vehicle Sweden – is a Chinese-founded company that continues to employ many ex-Saab engineers. They work in Trollhattan, and also in China. Their efforts since the foundation of NEVS have been entirely on electric cars and infrastructure.

They say they will have an all-new range of cars available some time after the electric 9-3. Just as well. There can’t be all that many people so loyal to the 9-3, whatever it’s powered by. If there were, Saab wouldn’t have gone bankrupt.
