P4 Väst: NEVS presents parts of its new businessplan
Today some information was presented about the new NEVS business plan. In an interview with P4 Väst, Mattias Bergman disclosed some details and presented the different versions of cars NEVS plan to build. What the brand name of the cars will be is not yet decided since NEVS no longer has the rights to the SAAB brand name.

The first car will be an electric version of the 9-3 which will be built on the old Epsilon platform, after that new models on the phoenix platform will follow suit, all of them specially adapted for electric propulsion. Whats noteworthy is that none of the cars are a Combi and most of the cars have a hatch-back design. The cars will be built in Trollhättan and Tianjin and already this summer NEVS will start to re-employ production staff, even though the first electric 9-3 is not scheduled to enter production until sometime 2017.
