NEVS AB (an abbreviated form of "National Electric Vehicle Sweden")[2] is a Swedish electric car manufacturer which has acquired the assets of Saab from a bankruptcy estate in 2012. NEVS is the trademark of the company’s products including the first electric vehicle based on the 9-3 platform which was to start in 2017.


On 31 August 2012, NEVS acquired the main assets of the Saab Automobile bankruptcy estates.[3]

In December 2015 the company signed a strategic collaboration agreement with the Chinese company Panda New Energy, an energy vehicle leasing company that focuses on limiting emissions. According to the agreement, NEVS will provide Panda with 150,000 9-3 sedan electric vehicles until the end of 2020.[4]

NEVS signed a battery contract with Contemporary Amperex Technology in 2017.[5]

In 2017, DiDi announced to place a SEK 4 billion order.[6] However, the agreement was collapsed.[7]

Owners and management[edit]

Chinese real estate conglomerate Evergrande Group, via its listed subsidiary: Evergrande Health Industry Group (Evergrande Health; SEHK:708), acquired 51% of the shares in NEVS in January 2019.[8]

In July 2020, Evergrande Health announced plans to privatizate NEVS by acquiring all the shares of NEVS.[9] The company also announced a rebranding to China Evergrande New Energy Vehicle Group.


NEVS currently only sells vehicles in China.
