We design and produce premium electric vehicles – no combustion powertrains or hybrids. We see this as only one aspect of the mobility experiences that will shape life for generations to come. Electrification, connected vehicles, changing ownership models, and autonomous driving are just some of the important trends that are transforming the industry. Our start-up mentality, coupled with our rich history, knowledge and competence in auto-making gives us a unique edge. That means we can hit the ground running focusing solely on what we believe is the future: electric vehicles and sustainable mobility experiences. To bolster our innovation, we’re establishing a production joint venture and an R&D joint venture in Tianjin Binhai High-Tech zone, and opening a brand experience center in Beijing.
We are a new company, but we see our future as an extension of our past. Since 1947, Saab cars have revolutionized the industry by rethinking the status quo. We build on our strong heritage, and, like Saab cars, we will continue to be innovative and daring. Our desire to challenge conventional thinking – whether a big idea or a small improvement – continues to inspire us. From openness in collaboration, quality in design and innovation in ergonomics, our Swedish heritage and culture continues to be a foundation for everything we do.
Trollhättan is located about 70 km north of Gothenburg. The town has turned into an attractive suburb to Gothenburg, much thanks to the new motorway and the double track railway.
People living here have discovered that Trollhättan represents a high quality of life with the calmness of a smaller town, yet providing all that an urban lifestyle has to offer. Access to nature and water is close by, not just the Göta Älv river, waterfall and the locks, but also Lake Vänern and the west coast.
The generous selection of restaurants, culture and nightlife available is further supported by University West and its 12,000 students. If you wish to visit the larger city of Gothenburg it is a mere 30 minutes away by train. All this, in combination with property prices being 50% lower than in Gothenburg, continually add to the appeal of Trollhättan and the reason why many choose to move here.
Apart from NEVS there are many large employers in the area, such as GKN Aerospace, Combitech, Siemens, Vattenfall, NÄL (Northern Älvsborg County Hospital) and the local Trollhättan Council. And not to be forgotten – Trollywood – where movie productions are frequent with both Swedish and international movies further establishing Trollhättan as something out of the ordinary.
