Although it’s 5 years old and has been put away since production, the last 2014 Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo sedan off the assembly line in Trollhattan, Sweden, is being displayed this weekend at the Saab Car Museum Festival and will be up for auction later this year, NEVS announced.
Although headquartered in Sweden, where it has approximately 700 employees, New Energy Passenger Vehicle Project is the Chinese company that acquired the assets of Saab Automobile AB in 2012. It opened an assembly plant in Tiajin, China, in 2018, has a plant under construction in Shanghai and has a third facility under construction in Guangzhou.
NEVS also owes 20 percent of Swedish sports car producer Koenigsegg.
Traditional production at Trollhattan ended in 2011 but in 2013, NEVS re-launched the plant, although only long enough to produce 420 vehicles.
The last car off the line is painted silver and its odometer shows 5 kilometers.
“Don’t miss this opportunity to own this brand-new Saab – the very last of its breed,” the company said in its news release. “Auctioneer, starting price and terms of sale will be published at a later date.”
