For those who have not heard – The Saab 9-3 is back! However, it’ll be called the NEVS 9-3, will be all-electric with a 186-mile range and built in China, in brand new factoryi n Tianjin.

Until there are  4 new  NEVS models, this “old” one the NEVS 9-3 is aimed at the Chinese market where it will be built initially at the rate of 50,000 units per year, rising to 200,000 a year at some point in the future. The first NEVS 9-3 rolled off a plant in Tianjin, China on Tuesday, marking an important step in NEVS’s plan to become a leading provider of sustainable mobility.

After many days and nights of hard work, it feels great to see these happy faces around NEVS's new EV!

NEVS, an electric vehicle maker based on 70 years of long Saab history, got approval by China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) for new energy vehicle production license in January 2017.

NEVS, which is owned 51 percent by Chinese-born #Swedish citizen Jiang’s National Modern Energy Holdings, broke the equivalent of the sound barrier in China autos when it emerged as the winning bidder for the assets of Saab in 2012, with the aim of transforming it into a leading electric carmaker.
