In recent days NEVS has begun to contact select Saab dealerships across Europe. The letter itself contains nothing that we have not already reported. It says NEVS investigate the possibility of restarting the production of the select versions of the 2012 9-3 while the launch the first electric vehicle is planned for early 2014. In a later stage the phoenix platform shall replace the 9-3 architecture.
The interesting thing about the letter is not the content, it’s the mere fact that NEVS did the step of reaching out to select dealers, asking those who are interested in further dialogue to check and if needed update their contact details. It’s a small step into the right direction, giving those an answer who asked how NEVS would want to sell their cars. It will be interesting to see how the dealers react, but I was told the first responses were very positive.
Things are definetely moving. Slowly but steadily and most of all in the right direction.
