After following it’s fellow GM castaways (Pontiac, Saturn, Hummer) in to bankruptcy back in 2011, now, over 2 1/2 years after the last Saab rolled off the assembly lines, the Swedish automaker is back with a brand new 9-3 Aero Sedan.
The familiar name is back, under the ownership of a Chinese-owned company named NEVS. The old GM brand ended up in Chinese hands after passing through the Swedish sports car maker Spyker and landing in bankruptcy during the economic upheaval.
Right now, the company has only plans to bring the Saabs back to the street of China and Sweden, with an electric model coming on the near horizon. Those of you state-side who are holding out hope for a return of the Swedish car brand with have to cross your finger a little longer.
