News from Sweden, Koenigsegg have… Wait, nope, that’s not it. It’s from another interesting company, one that’s called Saab.
The recently bankrupted company was bought out and announced a plan to come back to the public attention via the trendy bits of electric powered cars.
Lovely ambition and everybody is quite happy to see Saab make a comeback even if it’s going to take a few years before it’s ready.
In order to take a bit of a break from the constant cost of development, research, testing and whatever else they need to do before they produce something road-worthy, Saab need money.
Wanting to offset the costs of going electric, Saab will be making a pact with the devil and return to the market earlier in the process.
The pact is that they will be producing a new version of the Saab 9-3, one that will be powered by a more traditional internal combustion engine.
A decision such as this would be quite helpful to the cash flow of the company provided the new owner, NEVS, can work out the details of the supply chain.
It’s not unusual for a supplier to be reticent towards certain customers after they went bankrupt and failed to pay previous bills.
Either way, I have to say I’m pretty interested into how the Saab 9-3 could make a comeback. Let’s not forget that Saab already put quite a bit of work into a new platform for the 9-3.
With that and some new interior toys, the Saab 9-3 could be quite interesting.
