The batteries are from china (from Saabs own factory, they also make high capacitive bus batteries).

Sorry you lost me at SAAB.
I was under the impression that they went under years ago after multiple company buy-outs.
You can blame Top gear for that.

I'll shoot the elephant in the room and ask why they didn't start with the Aero X
The 9-3 looks like it was styled from the 90's - so the 100 body updates must be too subtle for me...

So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
Help prevent road rage - get outta my way!

Well they have only recently started the factory and they will do many more car models based on the new phoenix platform later on.
But I like the look of it, for instance here are some new photos from a dutch car seller:

(20 swedish miles = 200km, but this is only the prototype so the car will get longer driving range, and faster?)

Swedish Mile (Wikipedia) "mil" is 10km (since they went metric in 1889!). They use kilometres now. Talking distance in Swedish miles is like talking about people's height in feet. They use it for fuel consumption (L/mil = L/10km)

It's not as bad as the imperial gallon vs US gallon.

See also Metric Stormtrooper.
Planned EV: '63 Cortina using AC and LiFePO4 Battery Pack

I was just about to ask the same question...

eSaab would you please clearly advise your relationship with SAAB, so we can properly understand the purpose of your posts.

Just a fan of Saab and EV's and I hope that previous owners of petrol Saabs would consider to buy an EV.
Yeah - right. The only thing you post on this lonely thread is EV SAAB propaganda.

Yeah sorry I'm not buying it either. Think you would have far greater credibility with the forum if you told us your real relationship to SAAB.

I am leaning towards a non employee paid marketer who gets paid to make posts on forums, like the one that caught me with that freight forwarding company I wont mention.
