New Chinese Order Provides Saab with a Temporary Lifeline

Maybe the future of Saab isn’t as dark as it looks, and the voluntary bankruptcy proposed by suppliers isn’t the only solution. Well, at least for now. That’s because the Swedish automaker announced today that an unnamed Chinese company place an order to buy 582 cars, with a total value of € 13 million.
The pre-payment is to be received this week, giving Saab a much needed funding to pay its workers and suppliers. This, however, is only a short-term lifeline for the ailing company and the efforts to secure funds that will guarantee the brand’s future and restart production, which has been halted again since June 8, are ongoing.
