Electric car consortium confirms Saab bid

The electric car consortium, National Electric Vehicle Sweden, with the former Volvo head Karl-Erling Trogen on the board, has confirmed that it is one of the bidders involved in buying the bankrupt estate of Saab Automobiles.

Mattias Bergman, spokesperson for the company, told local media that it wants to continue to run the factory in Trollhättan.

National Electric Vehicle Sweden was formed in April, and its name was registered on Monday. It is owned by a Chinese energy company and a Japanese risk capital company.
