Maybe any of you has noticed it, but NEVS has changed the homepage of their site. The pictures of the MY14 9-3 are gone, which is good from my point of view, but on the other side the homepage is as vague as it could be. We know what they mean, but who else does? Ok, maybe all the people that visit that site knows about it.
But has this anything to do with Tomorrow(Monday)? No, I don’t think so, and as NEVS is not appearing in the exhibitors list of the Geneva Motor show, I expect, that we will be seeing those northern lights for the next weeks.
But tomorrow something will happen at NEVS facilities, something that I consider quite strange, but something that has a clear message.
On Monday January 25 at 13:30 CET the press is invited to a talk with Matias Bergman, CEO of NEVS, and Stig Nodin, head of technical development at NEVS, at the technical development center. The event is centered of the presentation of the last acquisition of NEVS, one of the rare prototypes of the electric Van that Saab developed in the ’70.
To acquire this car has a strong message, namely they want to be related with the past of SAAB. But on the other side it feels strange to me, that they spent money on this prototype, while a better looking version of it is dusting at the back rooms of the SAAB Museum.
To be honest, I’m not sure if this yellow E-Van still is at the museum, as this was one of the cars that were on sale in 2012, but I would have preferred to see some kind of cooperation between NEVS and the SAAB Museum.
I’m sure I don’t know the whole story, maybe not even a small part of it, so let’s wait till tomorrow to hear what NEVS has to tell.
BTW, this prototype was bought by NEVS back in November 2015 in the Netherlands, you can find some articles about that on other blog sites.
