Every piece of news can be interpreted in different ways. If someone has a “negative” preconceived mindset, it will interpret it negatively!
I personally do not see anything negative for Trollhattan and Sweden in this one, but the fulfilment of NEVS contractual obligation to supply electric minivans. Just the “application” of the know-how and R&D…[Read more]
By the way Monique, I used to play the “I know but I am not going to tell you” game when I was 6 y.o.
I guess you are an adult, therefore I invite you to keep “your mouth shut” as you very correctly suggest right at the beginning, rather than making some very childish remarks like “Have you heard anything? I do BUT may not tell you”.
Since you “assert that the conditions were announced to push out other bidders—-and the conditions changed after it was whittled down to NEVS” I urge you to contact the authorities in Sweden to report this!
PS: since you have been part a RFP process several times, you know very well the agenda of the Liquidators may very well differ from yours
Angelo, I am sure you agree that there is a big difference between:
1) NEVS have been a “spectacular failure”. This is your opinion on what NEVS have delivered to date, and your opinion must be respected;
2) saying that the sale to NEVS was something that “appeared to be a manipulated process” and “Mahindra were interested” thus implying…[Read more]
A “manipulated” process? Then the liquidators were bribed? Mahindra were interested? Then the liquidators acted against the interest of the creditors? The Swedish Government was a creditor also, was it not?
WOW, I am speechless Angelo. You really have access to some “hot” confidential stuff here!
Angelo, I actually think NEVS “saved” what was left of SAAB.
I do not recall a line of qualified parties, say BMW or PSA or FCA or PSA or else, in the front of the liquidators’ door to submit an alternative offer to buy SAAB … maybe I do not remember correctly … do you?
Angelo, thanks for your kind words for the “so desperate” that latch to any tiny morsel.
Now that you have understood that SAAB is not SAAB anymore and wish so strongly the SAAB name to be stripped from NEVS, I wonder what are you still doing in this SAAB blog and when you will start writing on the blog of your next favourite marque?
let me understand properly … putting down the list of the “fans that saved this car” would be seen as “getting something in return”? Very strange!
so in a museum in Sweden you never see next to, say, a painting a tag that says something like “donation of Mr. Whoever”?
Carlo A commented on the post, P4 Väst: NEVS presents parts of its new businessplan 4 months, 2 weeks ago
The Google translation of the article states that one Swedish newspaper SVD argues the right to the brand-name is still there. However, it was not Mathias that stated in the presentation that they have no right to the SAAB brand-name, but the journalist.
The brand name question
Apart from details about the product and services strategy,…[Read more]
although can anyone explain why if SAAB AB did not grant the use of the brand, they are still using the domain http://www.saabcars.com, and the website does depict SAAB all over?
If there is no intention to grant the use of the brand, I would ask NEVS to move their website to a different domain.
PS: NEVS did not go bankrupt, therefore…[Read more]
