Following the announcement on December 1st about the acquisition of NEVS’ Emily GT and PONS projects by EV Electra, Swedish journalist Karl af Geijerstam, editorial writer at Bohusläningen and a reporter for TTELA, has expressed his skepticism about the investor behind these projects. His latest article delves into the credibility and capability of EV Electra’s owner, Jihad Mohammad.

Controversies Surrounding Jihad Mohammad and EV Electra

Jihad Mohammad faces serious accusations from companies who originally designed the cars that EV Electra has been showcasing. Geijerstam questions whether the capital and trust in Mohammad are sufficient for mass production. The skepticism intensifies with revelations that EV Electra has been marketing cars on its website that were developed by other companies and used without permission.

Allegations of Model Theft and Legal Disputes

The Czech electric car company K1 Attack has ceased all dealings with EV Electra, alleging that EV Electra’s use of their car models is damaging their brand. Another car, reportedly developed by Detroit Electric, has led to a police report against EV Electra for alleged theft. Detroit Electric’s CEO, Albert Lam, accuses Mohammad of fraud after a failed investment promise of 500 million dollars.

Mohammad’s Response to the Allegations

Despite these allegations, Mohammad defends himself, claiming to have paid for the cars and having the right to use them for marketing. He accuses his critics of slander and has recently announced his reluctance to engage in further media interviews, citing misrepresentation by journalists.

NEVS’ Trust in Mohammad

Despite the negative references from K1 Attack and Detroit Electric, NEVS CEO Nina Selander has stated that extensive research on Mohammad revealed no irregularities. NEVS also ensured that the capital for the deal did not originate from Russia, which could potentially violate sanctions.

The Question of Financial Capability

Mohammad claims to have secured about 500 million dollars in capital without loans, citing religious beliefs against borrowing money. However, the source of this capital remains unclear. Geijerstam raises doubts about whether this amount is sufficient for large-scale production, especially when compared to significant investments by established car manufacturers like Nissan.

The Decision Lies with Trollhättan’s Stakeholders

Ultimately, the feasibility of car production under Mohammad’s leadership depends on the companies and individuals in Trollhättan. They must decide whether they trust Mohammad enough to support his plans, considering the controversies and stories that have surfaced.

Conclusion: A Future Clouded in Uncertainty

Karl af Geijerstam’s article highlights the myriad of challenges and doubts surrounding EV Electra’s recent acquisition. The future of car production in Trollhättan under Jihad Mohammad’s vision now hangs in a delicate balance, shaped by trust, financial capability, and the unfolding narrative of controversies and allegations.
