Saab restarts production with new 9-5

Saab is officially back in business. The production lines cranked back into life at the automaker’s plant in Trollhattan, Sweden yesterday and to mark the occasion the CEOs of Saab and new owner Spyker, Jan Ake Jonsson and Victor Muller, were there to watch the first batch of new cars being built.

Production at the plant had ceased for seven weeks. Now, after the purchase of Saab by Spyker, it’s all go again. The first cars to be built by Saab as an independent company will be delivered to customers shortly.

The first car off the line was the all-new 2010 Saab 9-5 sedan, set to join a test fleet prior to the model’s official launch later this year. A new 9-5 SportCombi is expected to be introduced next year, and a total of five model lines will be produced at the plant in the future.
