Saab’s Legacy Transforms: The Emily GT Project Moves to Italy for Production!

EV Electra Revolutionizes Electric Cars: Saab's Legacy Reborn with Emily GT Production in Italy

Emily GT's Electric SUV Variant: Sleek Design Meets Sustainable Innovation

A Strategic Shift Away from Sweden

In a surprising turn of events, EV Electra, a rising star in the electric vehicle market, has decided to move its manufacturing operations from Trollhättan, Sweden, to Italy. This decision came after the company encountered unexpected challenges with the condition of the Saab factory in Trollhättan and disagreements regarding the lease terms. EV Electra’s CEO, Jihad Mohammad, expressed a strong preference for owning rather than renting production facilities, leading to this significant strategic pivot.

Acquisition of Italian Automotive Factory

Jihad Mohammad recently confirmed that EV Electra successfully acquired an automotive factory in Italy, a move separate from their initial interest in the famed Maserati factory. This new venue is set to become a central hub for the production of various electric car models, including the innovative Nevs Emily GT, developed by former Saab engineers. The acquisition marks a crucial step in EV Electra’s aggressive expansion strategy, following multiple acquisitions over the last two months.

Revolutionary Electric Car Designs

The acquired Italian factory is poised to produce electric vehicles that promise to “shock” the automotive industry, according to Mohammad. EV Electra plans to introduce several new models, leveraging the cutting-edge technology developed in Sweden. The Nevs Emily GT, known for its exceptional handling and impressive power with 480 horsepower standard and a future 653 horsepower version, symbolizes the type of advanced electric vehicles EV Electra aims to manufacture.

Expansion of the Emily GT Model Family

Recent developments have revealed that EV Electra intends to expand the Emily GT lineup significantly. Initially introduced as a sedan, the range is set to include a station wagon, coupé, and convertible. An intriguing addition is the planned introduction of an electric SUV, further diversifying the Emily GT family. These plans underline EV Electra’s commitment to evolving and expanding its electric vehicle offerings, capitalizing on designs initially developed by NEVS.


Patent Revelations and Future Prospects

Intriguingly, while EV Electra has acquired the rights to the Emily GT family, recent patents for these models, including the upcoming variants, have been filed by NEVS, not EV Electra. This includes patent submissions for the new SUV model, suggesting a complex relationship between the two companies regarding the future of these designs. As the automotive community eagerly awaits further clarification from EV Electra and NEVS, the potential for these new models adds an exciting layer to EV Electra’s strategic maneuvers.

Challenges and Promises

Despite the excitement surrounding the new production capabilities, Mohammad has kept specific details under wraps. He notes that precise models and production plans will be disclosed after further discussions with investors and an official press release. This strategic secrecy is meant to manage expectations and ensure that all stakeholders are informed in a controlled manner.

Future Outlook

EV Electra’s shift to Italy represents a significant realignment in its operational strategy, potentially setting a new course for the electric vehicle industry. With its commitment to innovation and ownership of production facilities, EV Electra is poised to make a substantial impact on the global market. The automotive world watches closely as this bold move unfolds, anticipating the next big step from EV Electra in revolutionizing electric car production.

  • Oh, for God’s sake.
    This has nothing to do with Saab.
    Your continued promotion of this pipe dream simply makes your page less and less relevant to Saab enthusiasts and the real world.

  • According to my info: The car doesn’t have any safety test record or features. Therefore imho forget production in one year.

    • If Saab was still around they’d never have gone fully electric. As we’re all seeing, electric is not the answer in most cases. Electric is tanking big time. Zero emission E-fuels will be at the pump soon enough.

  • I’m watching this with interest. The immediate plans for production at the Italian car factory this year are not Emily GT but rather the other vehicles EV Electra “have”.

    Some of these expressions about EV Electra leave me a bit mystified. Such as: “a rising star in the electric vehicle market” (a bit premature?), “has decided to move its manufacturing operations from Trollhättan, Sweden, to Italy” (but they have never had manufacturing facilities in THN, so how can they move them?), and “EV Electra is poised to make a substantial impact on the global market. The automotive world watches closely as this bold move unfolds, anticipating the next big step from EV Electra in revolutionizing electric car production.” (really?)

    Much as I would love to see Emily GT succeed (and even own one), I am struggling to see how it could happen. And just what *is* the intellectual property rights relationship between NEVS and EV Electra?

  • I currently own a Saab,p so glad to see them come back… I will definitely save my pennies to get a new one.. you can count on it..!

  • If this thing is Not a Saab then I’m going to stop following this project, Why was Saab’s name pinned to this car if Saab isn’t involved in production of this car
