What a great interview. Really nice to see the employees starting to be more open about some of the exciting projects that are happening behind those famous Swedish doors. Also interesting to note that Anders Bjornberg seemed pretty confident about the company’s current position in terms of securing investment. Let’s hope all this clever inventing proves worth it in the next few months. I dare say we are rooting for new models to roll out of the factory doors!
Oh Trued, how could you possibly have asked “Who are you?” to such an important NEVS executive? A good interview plagued by that question in the back of my mind.
Let it go Brian, you obviously dont know how we usually interact in Scandinavia. To ask simply “vem är du” (who are you) in Swedish is simply the way we talk… it was not offensive in anyway!
Swedish is a much more casual language than british english.
Regardless of the lack of understanding on both our parts, let’s hope NEVS can succeed and we can start seeing SAAB’s being made and sold once again.
I dont think anyone disagree with you on that one! Keeping our fingers x’ed… =)
I’m English, I understood that Trued knows exactly to whom he was talking, I was not offended, I am now with all this rubbish that has been exchanged… … Back to the interview, very good indeed and I’m now looking forward to the videos of the test drive!! 🙂
Great Interview, the Saabista’s have a lot to hope for!!!!
They have to be more open because of the current state of the company. That’ll keep the ball rolling in the media. Remember when GM didn’t want to give SAAB more money to develop new models on their own, they came up with concept car models just to show something.
P.S. The strangest thing: I tried to log in using Google Chrome browser: didn’t accept my log in. Now when I’m using Mozilla Firefox, everything was OK. What gives???
I think Mahindra need NEVS and their people to make a great EV. 🙂
Yep agreed. Looks like the Saab factory can still come up with the goods no matter what has happened in the last 4 years!
We had a great day in Trollhättan at the Test Track. The track needs some TLC so if anyone has tarmac to spare and I guess NEVS would like it. When filming there was a lot of stone chips flying around. The interview was made with an iPad Mini retina in a iPadcaster with an external mic and LED lights and a Sony Wide Conversion Lens x0,7. Brian Hamilton, you are both right and wrong 🙂 as mention above we Swedes are on a “YOU” level with just about everyone with the exception of the Royal Court.
Oh well, I guess I’ll never know what kind of batteries they are using.
Yes you will, in the next interview =)
Excellent! I’m also curious about which media attended the test drives. Nothing seems to have come out out of Sweden?
Good stuff. Hope to see more soon. Fingers crossed for new investors for Saab.
Why do Nevs state 0-100 in ten seconds when the EV obviously beats the ICE-version on the track?
