The first images and details with the new Saab 9-3 EV prototype have been recently released by NEVS.
Did you ever wonder what the new Saab 9-3 electric vehicle might look like? Well, forget the answers you thought you had because the real deal has just landed and it will make Saab fans out there go bananas. The images posted below have been released by National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) and they represent a prototype of the 9-3 EV.
“We are happy to present the result of NEVS engineering into a real Saab EV product. The Saab cars’ well-known performance and safety is maintained and we foresee a very good product for the market. When we developed the Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan Model Year 14, we focused on enhancing the driving experience, safety and quality. And the starting point for our development of the Electric Vehicle project was to maintain all the good attributes and characteristics”, said Stig Nodin.
The new Saab 9-3 prototype is said to have an electric motor and lithium ion batteries. The total power of the model in question stands at 140 HP (100 kW) and this is allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) 10 seconds and to hit a top speed of 120 km/h (74 mph). The range of the model will stand at 200 km (124 miles) on a single charge. The batteries are mounted under the floor so they won’t affect the luggage or interior space.
