P4 West On Octoberfest

Look what I found while searching on NEVS just now. It’s none other then our own Tim Rokka talking about Octoberfest and NEVS first appearance to the fans of Saab.

When I do the Google translate it sounds like quite the headline, NEVS hits Saab fans. Lets hope it’s a little more civilized although sometimes Google translate makes for some very entertaining reading.

NEVS states to P4 West the importance of good relations with the fans and they most definitely realize the importance in this. We quite often hear complaints about how quiet they have been but in this case, they have accepted the invite to take part in the festivities at the museum for Octoberfest and to put a face to the company which in itself is a nice step forward to starting a more personal relationship with the fans.

It’s great that they want to be with and talk directly with their current and future fans. It gives the course a form of credibility to the company. People want to know things and people want to see them. You need to have a face to what one hears, says Tim Rokka, who is one of the organizers.

A lot has been written and speculated about NEVS/Saab and the future we will all hold together with a lot of un answered questions. For the first public appearance of the company to be held with the fans speaks volumes to me about a company that realizes the importance of their fan base. I know there are still a ton of unanswered questions when it comes to the future products of the new Saab and I honestly don’t know how many of these questions will be answered at such an event but we can feel good that the company to represent our brand wants to connect with us the fans.

Thanks Tim again for within your busy schedule of flying, attending a meeting at the museum and regular responsibilities (all in the last couple of days) for always making yourself available when people like Victor Jensen come calling and representing Saab and getting the word out when things like this are going on.

NEVS Talking To Unions

I have no idea how I missed this one yesterday, but while checking on all things SAAB/NEVS this morning I came across another great piece by Just Auto. Simon Warburton has a great article there about NEVS talking to unions ahead of a 9-3 recruitment drive.

That’s right, NEVS says they are talking to unions concerning its 2013 9-3 production that will be its first electric vehicle.

This would seem to be very smart on their part to seek out the unions in advance as these same unions had been burned through the administration and bankruptcy. Don’t forget, the ink hasn’t dried on the Saab deal and the deal is expected to be completed next month. I have to say that NEVS is taking things very serious and as much as to all of us, it may seem that nothing is happening, this proves to be far from the truth.
