Production of the last 'Saab' Emily GT begins this year

The Canadian-Lebanese company, which bought the last remnants of Saab Automobile/NEVS in 2023, will start production of the Emily GT as early as August.

Saab Automobile no longer exists.

After the bankruptcy in 2011, both Dutch Spyker and a Chinese real estate giant tried to keep the brand's legacy alive. But now it might succeed anyway.

The Canadian-Lebanese company, which bought the rights to the car Emily GT last year, will start production already this year.

Specifically, EV Electra's founder, Jihad Mohammad, says that production of the car, which was developed in just 9 months for China's NEVS bankruptcy, will begin on a small scale in August. All at a factory in Italy.

– We deliver cars in August to a few people. And when I say few, it can be hundreds and not thousands, he said at a press conference on Wednesday according to ViBilagare .

Jihad Mohammad adds that the Emily GT will look largely the same as when it was presented last year, but that it will have a more 'futuristic interior'.

The price? It hopes to be able to put the EV Electra somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 dollars, corresponding to between 340,000 and 410,000 Danish kroner.

As for the Saab name itself, the EV Electra hasn't given up on the idea of reviving it as well. In any case, an offer must be given for it, says Jihad Mohammad.

The Emily GT is the only truly self-developed car that ever came out of the Chinese attempt to live up to the legacy of Saab.

Last year NEVS – or National Electric Vehicle Sweden – had to fire 320 out of 340 remaining employees. One of director Nina Selander's last tasks was to find a buyer for the project.

It succeeded in December 2023. Still, the new Emily GT will not be built at the old Saab factory in Trollhättan. Read more about it here .
