Canadian EV Firm Acquires Saab Emily GT Rights

NEVS EV: Electra Emily GT Lives On

The outlook for the NEVS Emily GT, an electric luxury sedan constructed by ex-Saab engineers, has been unclear for some time – however, thanks to a new enterprise, the Emily GT is going to be a reality.

The Canadian new enterprise EV Electra has ventured in to rescue the Emily GT, having procured the privileges to the scheme from National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS). EV Electra now possesses the rights for the Emily GT and Pons, a further electricity-prompted concept.

Whilst the Emily GT is not a Saab, some have proclaimed it to be in the position of a spiritual successor to the 9-5 executive sedan. Delight will be expressed by Saab devotees and Swedes alike to learn that EV Electra plans to construct the Emily GT at the familiar Trollhattan manufacturing complex, where Saabs were forged for countless years.

“The future looks bright as we incorporate these projects into our portfolio, thus helping to bolster the Swedish automotive industry and expand our international presence,” remarked Jihad Mohammad, CEO of EV Electra.

One matter that is changing is the name. The Emily GT will no longer sport the NEVS or Saab logo and will rather be labeled as the Electric Vehicle Electra Emily GT when it comes into showrooms. NEVS Cars has been strongly influenced by the financial problems of its parent organization. Evergrande is facing nerve-wracking liquidity concerns, and even after their eventual attempts to dodge this, news reports suggest that an insolvency hearing will occur early in 2024 in Hong Kong.

Rumors emerged in the beginning of this year that a mysterious benefactor was set to invest in the Emily and Pons initiatives. A deal stipulated that the two must be fashioned and manufactured in Trollhattan, perhaps as an effort to preserve the legacy of Saab.

“The start of a thrilling chapter is now here for EV Electra, and we can’t wait to give out more information as we move towards full-scale production in Trollhattan, Sweden,” Mohammad added enthusiastically.

The unveiling of the prototype took place at the beginning of this year. Many have viewed it as a competitive affirmant to EVs such as the BMW i5, Mercedes EQE, and the Tesla Model S. This striking sedan is very powerful too; although prototypes are fitted with a 480-horsepower unit (made up of four independent motors supplying 120 hp each), there are reports that they are looking into creating a 653-hp variant accompanied by an impressive 1,622 lb-ft of torque.

It is said that the Emily GT will be fueled with a 175 kWh power source, allowing a travelling radius of 620 miles. Although the power output and the energy source may stay like this, it is still subject to potential modification from EV Electra.

Thanks to the four independent electric engines, the Emily GT boasts torque vectoring and can turn without manually adjusting the steering wheel. We anticipate that EV Electra will bring this ambition to fruition and thus enable the Saab vehicles’ legacy to endure.
