Guys: 1) Jesse: All of those huge, established companies are flush with money for R&D and some already have EVs and hybrids. They can turn on a dime if market conditions suddenly and inexplicably turn to EVs—-and blow NEVS out of the water with better EVs for a lower price than anything these people at NEVS can come up with. Saabdog hit the…[Read more]
I’m picturing KJJ with a white uniform and one of those cone-shaped paper hats with the “NEVS LEMONADE” logo on it, pouring a nice tall lemoade and squeezing fresh lemon in—-bowing and handing it to a customer.
I don’t think we know. We can guess though. I venture a guess that they haven’t completely lost the rights to the name yet—-but that is right around the corner. I would say that they already lost the name, but the fact that their good for nothing website is still up showing “Saab” leads me to believe there is some technicality that prevents…[Read more]
Nick: That’s the crazy thing though. At this point, I honestly believe there’s a better chance at seeing Pontiacs built again than Saabs. There have been a few rumblings at GM about building a Firebird or other Pontiac model and selling it through GMC Trucks. It’s an extreme long shot, but we’re now staring at an extreme, extreme longshot with…[Read more]
There’s a lot of profits to be made and power to be gained through hysteria. It’s the oldest trick in the book—-scare people into allowing themselves to be controlled. This is seriously ridiculous that we have to have an argument about “taking action” to make the climate what we want it to be. It’s beyond silly. I wonder if these people…[Read more]
A “couple” of years? Good luck with that.
Maybe he should put a rocket into space without blowing it up. Then he can come back to figuring out how electric cars can replace the gold standard—-gas and diesel.
Range anxiety is a reality. I don’t care what Musk says—-at this point in time and for at least the near future, range anxiety is very real.
As Doug R. wrote—-they are going to milk the last droplet of a drop of technolgy—-anything they can get their hands on in Sweden—-and zap it back to China. This was never about Saab in Sweden. That became so apparent, it’s sickening.
Much like watermelons and tomatoes are both considered fruits.
I wish the best for the Trollhattan people too. It was a great ride for many decades. We enjoyed the Saabs you sent to us in the USA and we’re still enjoying them—-all eras of Saab. Unless another company somehow gets use of the brand name, or if miraculously, Saab AB gets back in the car business, it’s over now. While there was hope, I…[Read more]
Yep. Doug R. said this a long time ago. I was hoping they had better things in store for Sweden but apparently not.
I’m not out yet. I’m hanging in with NEVS as a curiosity at this point. I’m intrigued by where they are going with this venture—-or where they THINK they are going and if they get there.
It sounds like positive news for NEVS and their fans—-but is it related to Saab at all? Will they be building electric Saabs at that new plant in China, where they are investing all of this money in China for Chinese jobs?
Well, that’s the point of having debate and discussions. Some people like the plan, others don’t. Some people don’t like NEVS, others do. I hear a lot of chatter about how great Tesla is—-and that’s fine. I see Teslas every day in my area. Frankly, I don’t find the cars nearly as attractive as some do—-but beauty is in the eye of the…[Read more]
Jesse: The progression of society doesn’t irk me at all. The trashing of Saab, admittedly, THAT irks me a bit. Funny how companies like KIA are raking in the millions, selling 120,000 KIA Souls per year, mostly gas engines. Honda, Toyota, Jeep—setting sales records with gas engined vehicles too. BMW and Audi, with gas and…[Read more]
Aren’t there some two stroke lawn mowers or snow blowers still around? You can collect some of that stuff to use the oil!
Well, overpriced “premium” has had Saab cars at or near bankruptcy and collapse several times, so if Saab AB likes the association with failure, I guess that’s their prerogative. Honestly, I’m sick of them, too. If they have this vision and want cars with their name sold to consumers to somehow support and fortify their name in aviation and…[Read more]
Right again, Doug. Dr. Nevs is harvesting organs from the dying patient (that they might have deliberately killed), Saab, and will transplant the organs to the Chinese operation. All we do now is hang onto our Saabs while parts are available and service doesn’t cost a fortune. The value has been sucked out of the cars because of how horribly…[Read more]
