Electric vehicle company may have purchased Saab
Those companies interested in Saab included Chinese firm Youngman Lotus, Indian firm Mahindra & Mahindra and Swedish firm National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS); with the Swedish company reportedly making the bid that would be accepted by the administrator overseeing the court-forced bankruptcy proceedings. Unfortunately, NEVS has only confirmed that they made a bid on April 7th (the last day that the Swedish gov’t was accepting purchase offers) while the court appointed administrators have refused to comment to either confirm or deny the news that there is a buyer lined up for Saab.
According to English-speaking Swedish news source the Local, Trollhattan city manager Annika Wennerblom confirmed that there was a buyer chosen for Saab but she did not know who the prospective buyer was nor did she know any other official details. Unfortunately, another (higher ranking) member of the Trollhattan city management has explained that Wennerblom was incorrect and that her comments were based on “a misinterpretation”.
