Koenigsegg will be able to take advantage of opportunities and capacities NEVS in Sweden.
If you remember, went bankrupt a few years ago, Saab was bought out by Chinese NEVS, National Electric Vehicle Sweden. At that time, NEVS President Mattias Berman said that “highly upgraded” version of the 9-3 produced in China will be supplied for Chinese and Swedish markets from 2017. Since then, no news from NEVS almost did not arrive, however, recently it became known that Evergande Group bought a majority stake in the company.
Now Autocar reports that NEVS became the owner of a 20 percent stake in Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg and plans to buy another 45 percent, investing 130 million euros. Plans to manufacture electric cars based on the experience of the Koenigsegg. Koenigsegg will have the opportunity to use engineering and test centers NEVS in Trollhattan, Sweden.
The deal “will provide a reliable and sustainable future,” said Christian von Koenigsegg.
In accordance with information published by Autocar, Evergrande owns a large dealership network in China that can be used to increase the representation of the supercar manufacturer in this part of the world.
Despite this, it seems that will be a long time until the first fruits of cooperation. But there is hope!
