Japanese-Chinese firm confirms Saab bid
The consortium -- consisting of has the Chinese energy corporation National Modern Energy Holdings and the Japanese risk capital firm Sun Investment -- has registered a company in Sweden named National Electric Vehicle Sweden, spokesperson Mattias Bergman said.
"We can confirm that we are a bidder and that we are still interested in the assets of Saab," Mattias Bergman told Swedish news agency TT.
"We will at the present not publicize our business plan. We are interested in what the brand name stands for, the high competence of Saab and the plant facilities which are world class".
"We will come back to the business plan and the number of employees needed."
Saab filed for bankruptcy late last year, after struggling to secure long-term investment since it was sold off by GM in 2010.
