While we are waiting…

The announcement is finally near after some days of extremely hot discussions. The aim of NEVS to make electrical and hybrid cars was in the center of those discussions so I thought I’d bring up a a few videos of what a Saab hybrid could be. In the end NEVS may be much closer to Saab’s original plans than we all would think.

Yu can find even more videos on the eAAM YouTube channel. Another good read on this issue is a post that RedJ did last year as AMS Sweden tested that system.

And now relax and wait for the end of the rollercoaster ride. Let’s see what we get to hear and let’s stay open minded for new ideas a new owner may bring. I feel this can be the start of something really big.

      • hopefully with some preferential treatment – and of course the capacity to form a new partnership to test and develop the descendants of this tech.

      • Yes. I tried to edit the post but had no chance to do it. See my post in the next topic. The receivers sold the shares in the joint venture. But buying a license is not bad at all.

  1. Thank you: I think they are spot on if they plan to make hybride cars with the eAAM. That’s what I hope for. πŸ™‚

  2. Unfortunately most of us think of a Toyota Prius or similar when the word hybrid is mentioned, but a car being a ‘hybrid’ covers a whole range of technologies which make the car different from a conventional vehicle. As Saab fans, I guess the cars like those depicted in the above clips could be cars we’d actually quickly grow to like. If NEVS can build a e-AAM (Phoenix based 9-3 replacement) Saab hatch that can can come close to the practicality of the old C900 and perform really well, I’ll change my opinion of it. Until then alas, I’ll have to remain a sceptic. Anyway, would the BMW 1.6 still be used?

    • You dont have to be that sceptic, I think. The Saab eAAM/phoenix-tech/hybrid is pretty far developed and something quite different from Prius etc. Saab-engineers were talking about a break-through bigger then the turbo in 1978!!! So let us just hope that NEVS will use and finish this Saab-tech!!! (and why shouldnΒ΄t they….)

  3. This is great – exactly what I want to see from the relaunched Saab. Really impressive tech that just makes the car that much more useful, practical, and capable – all things a Saab should be, and always has been.

    I don’t see why Saab’s work with e-AAM should be considered “history”. I’d guess there’s a lot of cameraderie between ex-Saab engineers and these guys, which should help broker a good deal – I’d guess Saab going under was a big hit for e-AAM, too, and it’d be a pity to not see this thing through. I actually think that Saab could sell the facelifted 9-3 with this tech no problem.

  4. To me, this is great news! Saab have always been pioneers and innovators and this seems to fit perfectly. Bring it on! πŸ™‚

  5. AHHHH!!! What time will it be in Melbourne, Australia when its 1pm in Trollhattan????? Need to stay up for this one if you’re going to post the press conference. πŸ™‚

    • Very sad choice! If so, I’m out! πŸ™
      I already have 1 Volvo (V70 D5 Aut), and Volvo has shown an interesting hybrid V60.

    • yep, I’m going to wait and see but must admit my enthusiasm in the immeidate future would be for things like the hybrid e-AAM above, not an all-electric car.
