I would disagree, I have been a Saab person for decades,Basically Saab is dead.... Sabbers are not Electric car people, they are sport / performance people. BMW here I come... well, I'll give the SS some more time, it's still got a pulse.
They plan of keeping the 9-3 and Phoenix.Don't count on it! Hold your breaths! Till the time (if ever) Trollhattan starts building cars, they will produce batteries (in cooperation with Prudent Energy) and biomass ethanol products for electrical energy production. This is what National Modern Energy Holdings (the new buyer from Hong Kong) is interested in. And this is much more profitable business than electric cars.
So Saab (the brand we all used to know) has ceased to exist.
The new buyer is not even interested in buying Saab Parts! They do not care about Saab's heritage and existing Saab models.
This was a sale backed 100% by the Swedish Gov.
Where are you getting the info on performance?yeah... no thanks. I don't think I'll ever buy what will most likely be an overpriced electric car that has no performance value. That deal effectively made saab into a completely different brand, cutting it off from most of its former supporters.
These aren't too bad just too much$$$I'll hold my tongue until I see some actual specs of the new Saabs.
Electric cars are not necessarily a bad thing, there just hasn't been a good one made yet. Mostly due to current battery technology.
