Chinese-led NEVS contemplates SAAB resurrection
Saab, an iconic Swedish automobile manufacturer, which dwindled over time into the wrath of bankruptcy, may be in for a possible resurrection, as National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), a Chinese-Japanese consortium who currently owns SAAB, has announced its intentions to introduce an electric version of the Saab 9-3 Convertible.
According to reports from the European car mag, Autoweek, NEVS intends to reveal an electric version of the Saab 9-3 Convertible, initially in the Chinese markets, and possibly elsewhere around the globe. The lineup may later include the sedan and SportCombi variants of the 9-3 model, in both electric and non-electric variants, the latter possibly powered by GM-sourced internal-combustion engines.
If reports are to be believed, and if the scheduled 2012 apocalypse never occurs, then the SAAB fans around the world will have a reason to rejoice, well within a couple of years.
