Following Saab’s near-death and bankruptcyyears and the manufacturer’s last-minute save by Chinese NEVS, the Swede's single 9-3 sedan model is soon to be joined by a 9-3 EV, followed by areincarnation of its SportCombi station wagon. Later, these models may bejoined by a 9-3 convertible, sporting some of that Swedish style that Saab wasfamous for. With a range of 124 fully-electric miles, the 9-3 will go on salein Qingdao, China, in addition to Sweden.

The SportCombi wagon will soon follow, possibly as early as2015. The company has also hinted that a convertible is likely, but nothinghas been confirmed as of yet. Saab hopes to take its models back to theglobal market at some point in the future, but for now they will all be offeredonly in China and Sweden.
