“At present, we are not in discussions concerning the possibility for NEVS to use the mark in the future.”
Saab spokesperson Sebastian Carlsson has dismissed rumours about a revival of the Swedish car brand, saying that there are no corresponding discussions with Saab owner National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS).
“We need to be more focused on future suppliers of electric motor components and the connected car. We have to really understand what happens in this business to identify the right partners to have in five to eight years from now.”
Skoda’s purchasing boss Dieter Seemann sees sourcing EV parts as his biggest challenge as many of these suppliers are “completely new to us”.
