Lets hope NEVS could reveal more informations on the two chinese owner representatives in the board. A search on the web gives no hits whatsoever. The swedish guys are found out there in cyberspace. I am sorry to see no women in this group of directors. Unless any of the two chinese persons is a she. Lets hope for that. If not I would give the board an F for failure in gender integration. For sure women also buy cars. Mr. Jiang start a search for great women. I bet SU readers have good qualified names to support in the search.

It is interesting to see that none of the board directors have any classic or modern unique collectors or enthusiast cars in their garages.

SaabsUnited wish the new board luck in forming an efficient and strong team to spearhead NEVS into the future!

Just a question. I have no idea how much time and effort it takes to be a board member, or how important they really are. However, I don’t understand how someone can be a board member of so many companies simultaneously and still devote enough attention to any one company. I guess it’s like a part time job to them. 🙁

Any chance the Yamaha moped is turbocharged?

By the way Trued, you have had some enjoyable recent posts, e.g. regarding the long-time SAAB shop owner, how to own a new SAAB, and the SAAB Museum birthday. These may not generate as much response as posts about the controversial NEVS, but they make good reading.

Yes, agreed, very true.

Seriously, who cares about the lack of women in the board? That seems to be a typically Swedish fixation, which the Chinese could probably care less about (or at least I hope so). What matters is that the board is competent.

Then again, this is NEVS (No Electric Vehicles in Sweden), so it’s hard to care in any case.

Trued, I agree with your concern to see more women in the board. Anyhow this news show that things are getting forward.

How does the listing of the board of directors and the cars they drive (or mopeds they ride) show that things are getting done or moving forward?

Mick E. Bice

Because they’re moving forward when they’re in their cars, presumably.

I guess it proves they know how to drive cars, even if they can’t build them.
