To mark start of construction of Nevs’ New energy vehicle factory in China, and the establishment of a R&D-center, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held in Tianjin June 28.

Short but sweet.
Please don´t be alarmed. The Tianjin factory is meant to build cars for the Chinese market. The Trollhättan/Stallbacka plant will still be set up to manufacture vehicles for the rest of the world and as stated R&D etc will remain in Trollhättan as well.
I believe we will see a steady flow of news in the coming weeks/months from NEVS with major announcements being made.
AND -IMHO- NEVS are currently strengthening their position in negotiations with SAAB AB regarding the Saab brand name. Every piece of news regarding investments are of course seen as reassuring to SAAB Management. It is my firm -and many others I have spoken with- that New Saab vehicles will soon be built at Stallbacka.
