Saab's New Owners Reported Reopening Trollhattan Plant
New Saab owner National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) has reportedly re-opened the former Swedish brand’s Trollhattan factory that shut its gates in April 2011 prior to the company filing for bankruptcy later that year.
According to a report by Swedish publication Aftonbladet, NEVS – a consortium comprising a Chinese renewable-energy powerplant builder and a Japanese investment firm – has 180 employees at the plant working on test manufacturing.
With the company’s relaunched Saab 9-3-based vehicle long planned to go on sale by 2014, the report says production of the model is to commence next month.
