NEVS Emily GT - electric Saab descendant with 1000 km range still in production -

Last spring it was announced that a sensational electric car had been developed in the old Saab factory in Sweden. Unfortunately, the money ran out and the NEVS Emily GT to become yet another stillborn Saab child. But now it seems to be okay…

Ah yes, Saab. The brand that almost everyone had sympathy for, but that hardly anyone bought. And then it finally went bankrupt at the end of 2011. But not before a huge soap had played, with General Motors, former Spyker foreman Victor Muller and all kinds of Chinese parties in the lead.

Saab became NEVS

The factory was bought by National Electric Vehicle Sweden, NEVS for short, part of the Chinese real estate company Evergrande. In the old factories, NEVS wanted an electric variant of the Saab 9-3 building, but that was anything but a success.

The Saab brand name was owned by the extremely wealthy Wallenberg family, who forbade NEVS to use it for future products. Only they didn't come at all, it seemed. Most of the activity on the former factory site could be seen at the Saab Museum.

Electric 'Saab' with 1000 km range

Until April this year it came out that a sensational electric car had been developed in Saab's hometown of Trollhättan. With four wheel motors, a battery pack with a capacity of 175 kWh and a range of more than 1000 kilometers. All that wrapped in a gigantic sedan body with hints to the latter Saab 9-5.

Emily GT gets 480 to 650 horsepower

The wheel motors were developed by the Chinese company Protean and in the current version each deliver 120 hp. In total, the NEVS Emily GT therefore has 480 horsepower on board. Good for a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just over 3 seconds. With a performance package, the power could even be increased to 650 hp.

Thumbs up from von Koenigsegg

Motoring journalists from, among others, the British TopGear and the German Auto Motor und Sport were deeply impressed by the car, and in particular by its handling. The comparisons with the Porsche Taycan were not off the air and even Christian von Koenigsegg, foreman of the eponymous hypercar factory, was enthusiastic.

Series production preparations start

The news caused a lot of commotion and suddenly there seemed willingness from all sides to help finance this 'Saab revival'. The new owner of the factory is Swedish billionaire Svante Andersson, who sees a lot of potential in the youngest Saab descendant. According to Andersson, the factory halls will be prepared next fall to enable series production of the Emily GT. And let's hope that it won't be another roller coaster between hope and fear like in 2010 and 2011. Although nobody in Sweden expects Svante Andersson to do a Victor Mullertje …
