On the same day NEVS launched a new landing page on their website www.saabcars.com, a press release was issued announcing a press viewing of the first SAAB EV, developed in 1974. The car was recently shown to the public in an opening ceremony at company SaabPartners in The Netherlands, where it was handed over to a NEVS delegation. On Monday this “ur-EV-SAAB” will return to its roots to join its most recent siblings. Will this also be the day where more details about these latest EV-developments and the “shaping of a more sustainable future of mobility” will be revealed? We’ll know on Monday…
Translation of the original Swedish language press release:
Press viewing on Monday 25 January of the first EV developed in Trollhättan during the 1970’s.
Vehicle development with a focus on innovation, safety and the environment has a history of many years in Trollhättan. Already at the start of the 1970’s, an electric vehicle was developed by then SAAB-Scania.
NEVS has now had the opportunity to obtain one of these very first EV’s. The production year is 1974 and the car has among others served as a test car and has in recent years been on in display in a car museum in The Netherlands.
Journalists are welcome to participate in the handover of this EV to NEVS. Taking part are among others President Mattias Bergman and Stig Nodin, Head of technical development.
