Subaru to produce cars in Trollhättan

No one knows for sure if or when Saab's factory in Trollhättan in the west of Sweden would start up again, but a new car company, Subaru, is coming to town, reports Swedish Radio News.

Subaru will rent a factory from the town and hire in Saab employees, at least in the beginning. The project will provide around 50 jobs and begins in January.

The Japanese carmaker will convert two Subaru car models so they can run on compressed natural gas. The project is a Swedish initiative in cooperation with the Italian company BRC.
