Saab reopens factory

A SWEDISH motoring magazine has reported online that Saab has reopened its main factory located in Trollhättan, Sweden. Details are limited, but the reports indicate that Saab's new owners National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) have 180 staff currently employed at the facility.
The publication went on further to state that manufacturing tests are being performed in preparation for the re-launch of the Saab 9-3 (pictured). The revived 9-3 model would go into production next month according to the Swedish publication, and it could be offered in both sedan and convertible guises.
It is highly likely that the revived Saab9-3 will remain identical to the old model but will eventually get a facelift according to an NEVS official.
The returning Saab 9-3 will be powered by a series of regular combustion engines options first. An electric-powered variant is currently in development and could surface next year.
