And nobody has yet denied that M&M plans to be the main owner of NEVS. I feel like you’re filtering depending on what you want to hear.
I’m not sure if M&M is still interested or not, but as long as there is no official denial I will continue thinking about is as a outcome too the whole story.
According to Blomberg those are the official statements from Pininfarina and M&M
A spokesman for Pininfarina …He declined to comment on takeover talks. A representative for Mahindra said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.
Not much difference to the statements from NEVS or M&M on the Saab case.
Pininfarina isn’t only a design studio. I it also a contract manufacturer like Valmet. For instance the Volvo C70 was not only designed by Pininfarina but also build in a factory in Uddevalla (neraby THN) that belonged to Pininfarina.
Currently Volvo has no convertible and Pininfarina had to sell that factory.
maybe it’s a bit harsh, I’ve never bin the most diplomatic guy in the world. But I’m not talking about the engineering but about the way the press has been selling this idea to the world.
And if you search the net for my comments on the Regera, you will find only words of prise.
Detached Emotions mode.
IMHO, Mahindra is willing to invest in a “upmarket” Brand from their point of view. They already tried to buy JLR.
Yes, the brand is highly damaged, but it is more difficult to enter that market sector with a new brand (see Infinity, Lexus …).
I’m not saying that this is the best decision for Mahindra, this is their…[Read more]
So you are saying that because aren’t able to sell their millions of cars, no small company should be allowed to try to sell a few hundred thousand cars.
Joe, there a re people that don’t want to have to buy a VW a Toyota or a Chevrolet. From my point of view you could pile those cars and then sell it as art, as long as can buy a car with more character.
From what I’ve found in the net the prototype is exposed at the Car-Museum from Valmet in Uusikaupinki, Finland. There are some pictures of the car on Flickr from a user called Saabrobz.
But according to the Video and what I’ve read, the car was only a show car for their 5 bow convertible system. Not really a car with specs.
SvD, a serious Newspaper that still uses pictures of Saab cars when talking about SAAB AB!!
I don’t have nothing against the Swedish Press, but sometimes I feel like they only try to sell newspapers no matter the effects of the text they publish.
Tim once said that technically those cars already existed before SAAB AB took NEVS the right to use the SAAB branding on any new product.
Making it simple; nobody has to remove the SAAB badges from their cars.
it makes sense to believe that this is the long journey to a new majority owner. So at the end of the tunnel we will find new decision-takers.
So let us hope that those have a more successful plan for a future Saab car company.
