The History of the SAAB - Saab Automobile AB
In the midst of WWII, from manufacturing engines, to aircraft, to cars.
Saab Automobile's history began
Saab Automobile AB is a Swedish premium car manufacturer. It was formed in
1945 when Saab AB began a project to design a small automobile. The first
production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. In 1968 the parent
company merged with Scania-Vabis, and ten years later the Saab 900 was
launched, in time becoming Saab's best-selling model. In the mid-1980s the
new Saab 9000 model also appeared.
In 1989 the automobile division of Saab-Scania was restructured into an
independent company, Saab Automobile AB. The American manufacturer General
Motors took 50% ownership with an investment of $600 million, and then in
2000 exercised its option to acquire the remaining 50% for a further $125
million; so turning Saab Automobile into a wholly owned GM subsidiary. In
2010 GM sold Saab Automobile AB to the Dutch automobile manufacturer Spyker
After struggling to avoid insolvency throughout 2011, the company
petitioned for bankruptcy following the failure of a Chinese consortium to
complete a purchase of the company; the purchase had been blocked by former
owner GM, which opposed the transfer of technology and production rights to
a Chinese company. On June 13, 2012, it was announced that a newly formed
company called National Electric Vehicle Sweden (Nevs) had bought Saab
Automobile's bankrupt estate. According to "Saab United", the first Nevs
Saab 9-3 drove off its pre-production line on September 19, 2013. Full
production restarted Monday December 2, initially the same gasoline-powered
9-3 Aero sedans that were built before Saab went bankrupt, and intended to
get the automaker's supply chain back up and running as it completes
development of its new Nevs products.
