National Electric Vehicle Sweden begins production of gasoline-engined Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan

2 December 2013

National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB has started production of the Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan with a gasoline engine at the old Saab Trollhättan plant. Sales are initially focused in China with a small number of vehicles being sold directly from NEVS to Swedish customers via the NEVS’ website.

The car that is produced is a high-spec Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan with a 220 hp (164 kW) 2.0-liter turbo.

The production rate will be very modest, about ten cars a week initially, and then gradually the pace will be increased to meet demand.

The electric car based on the Saab 9-3 will be launched in spring 2014, with China as the first market. NEVS’ partner and part owner Qingdao has initially placed an order for a pilot fleet of 200 electric cars with delivery starting in spring 2014.

Sales of the new 9-3 Aero in Sweden will start on 10 December. The price is 279,000 SEK (US$42,500) with manual transmission and 289,000 (US$44,000) with automatic transmission.

NEVS’ goal is to be a front runner in the automotive industry, with focus on electric vehicles, where China is its initial main market.
