The new owners of Swedish car maker Saab have restarted production two years after the firm went out of business.
National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB (NEVS) is making the 9-3 saloon at the Trollhattan factory in Sweden.
The 9-3 sedan will be powered by a turbocharged gasoline engine and built in “small and humble numbers” for China, with the city of Qingdao owning 22 percent of NEVS.
A revamped electric Saab is expected to released next year in China.
It comes almost two years after Saab, which had made cars since 1947, filed for bankruptcy. Saab
was previously owned by General Motors Co, which sold it to Dutch sports car group Spyker in 2010.
