Interesting. Unless I missed it, there is not a single reference to Saab in this article.

You are right.  I did a "find" and there is none.  Not surprising since Saab AB have refused any rights for use of the name "Saab" on any NEVS product.

Hardly surprising really, Saab died 6 years ago!

Yes, but normally there is some reference to using the old Saab 9-3 platform in there somewhere ;)

Which is an old GM platform, I would imagine you don't want to shout about building cars on a platform that was developed nearly 20 years old when you're planning to use it for the foreseeable future!
