AB Nyköpings Automobilfabrik (ANA) founded in 1937[1] was an automobile manufacturer in Nyköping, Sweden that assembled trucks from Chrysler, DeSoto, Plymouth, Fargo[1] and later also Škoda[1] and Standard[2][3] and from the mid-1950s also Simca.[1][4] From 1946 they also sold Piper aircraft.[5][6] The company was founded as a daughter company of Nordiska Kompaniet.[7] During the 1960s the company distributed Massey Ferguson tractors, developing a modified version of the Ferguson hitch called the Swedish Hitch.[8]

In 1960, the company was bought by SAAB and renamed SAAB-ANA and changed into being a SAAB dealership.[1] In 2013 ANA started selling BMW and Mini[9] and they had since a few years also made police versions of BMW cars and motorcycles.[10] Some production re-emerged when NEVS bought the bankruptcy estate and in 2016 NEVS announced that the brand name Saab would cease.
