The 2024 Saab 9-3 is a compact executive car originally developed and manufactured by the Swedish automaker Saab. 2024 Saab automobile production ceased in May 2014 due to the failure of NEVS’s shareholder, Qingbo Investment, to reach a financing agreement. Indian Mahindra & Mahindra agreed to buy a majority stake in NEVS, in 2014. In February 2015 it was announced that the remaining 100 cars on the production line, which has been discontinued since May 2014, will be completed. Production of the electric Saab 9-3 in China started in 2019.
The National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) resumed production of the Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan MY14 on 2 December 2013 at Saab’s former Trollhättan assembly plant. The only external difference in the MY14 model is the absence of the Griffin badge, which NEVS does not own the rights to. The Griffin has been replaced with a badge displaying the Saab logo alongside new seats. The Saab 9-3 Aero MY14 is powered by a 220 horsepower 2.0-liter direct-injection twin-scroll turbocharged engine and went on sale in Sweden on December 10. The first cars were to be delivered in Spring 2014 as a “Limited Edition” model. Only two colors were available, black and Silver.
