Joe: And you dig for the truth, as usual. And you find it. Yes, yes, yes—the REAL reason I am bitter toward NEVS is that with Youngman in line to get Saab, there was a budding romance in my future with Rachel Pang. It was only a matter of time. Then NEVS came in and BANG, that was the end of that.
It’s just a suggestion to save the brand—-or if it’s already too late to save the brand, it’s advice for NEVS to position their new brand. They aren’t going to get Volvo money for their cars. They’re just not—-whether they are Saabs or Nevies. If they want to put the world in electric cars, maybe they need to offer the lowest priced…[Read more]
That’s nice to hear, but in 4 years, we’ve seen no evidence that they are on task. They were in bankruptcy last year. They were jerked around by Qingdao and looked foolish in that escapade. They’re not showing exciting concepts, apparently not at auto shows, website doesn’t show sketches or development of things they might be working on, they…[Read more]
People need to get over that. Low volume didn’t work out too well. They could have a low volume pricey model maybe—-but the idea that will work for them moving forward is high volume, low price.
Rune: There have been several versions of this tale. The popular one was that NEVS wanted no part of producing that 9-3, but “The Province” (investor) forced them into it and then walked, leaving NEVS holding the bag. LMAO at NEVS lack of business skills, lack of judgement, lack of hutzvah—-the lack, lack, lack, just about everything,…[Read more]
Saabs weren’t priced competitively compared to what the same money would buy in other lines. Screwing these together in China and not having developmental costs associated with a new model, I bet they could bring it in for much, much less than what Saab was asking for.
I disagree Hakan. I have seen posts here over the years, including not that long ago—where people have grasped the tiniest morsel of news from NEVS and stated that “things are moving in the right direction” or “Hurray, this is great news!” and that sort of thing. It’s euphoria without any basis in reality in my opinion. The “fingers crossed”…[Read more]
I detest what NEVS has done—-or maybe what they HAVEN’T done for four years. No secret—-I don’t like their business plan at all and I’m unimpressed with them to the point of calling them incompetent and agreeing with every negative post about them on this forum. All that said—-I think Avelik brings a very important point of view to every…[Read more]
Does anyone know if there is a legal reason/restriction on BAIC bringing Senova to the United States and Canada? If they were successful in getting these cars to pass our emissions and safety requirements, would they be legally able to sell them? I’m not talking about the ones with Saab kits on them—-but the standard Senova cars based on old…[Read more]
Avelik: That is a very optimistic/encouraging post. I hope it is accurate. Do you think NEVS has been active in making Saab AB aware of their plans and progress? Since the brand name seemed to be important to NEVS at the onset a few years ago, I would think they would keep Saab AB in the loop to assure them that the right steps are being…[Read more]
I would like oriounited because at this point, Orio is the most important entity in helping me maintain my Saab. NEVS hasn’t even blinked in my direction and Saab is dead. So Orio is where our loyalty should be for the time being I guess.
