Por favor coloque aqui todas notícias importantes sobre essa indústria, base na infra-estrutura do transporte terrestre.
Comecarei com esta. Como vocês sabem a SAAB nao existe mais, faliu. Um consorcio comprou a fábrica para produzir um veículo elétrico.
National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB
National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB (NEVS) and the Receivers of the Saab Automobile bankruptcy estate signed on June 12 2012 a purchase agreement which covers the main assets of Saab Automobile.
NEVS is an international consortium formed by Japanese, Swedish and Chinese stakeholders. The company will establish a new automobile venture in Trollhättan, solely dedicated to development and manufacturing of electric vehicles (EVs). NEVS aims to become a leading manufacturer of electric vehicles.
Kai Johan Jiang, founder and main owner of National Modern Energy Holdings Ltd, the majority shareholder of NEVS:
“China is investing heavily in developing the EV market, which is a key driver for the ongoing technology shift to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. The Chinese can increasingly afford cars; however, the global oil supply would not suffice if they all buy petroleum-fueled vehicles. Chinese customers demand a premium electric vehicle, which we will be able to offer by acquiring Saab Automobile in Trollhättan.”
Karl-Erling Trogen, Chairman, National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB:
“I am delighted that we can build on Saab Automobile’s skills in vehicle design and production to start a new future-oriented venture in Trollhättan, where world class manufacturing facilities are available. We will match Swedish automobile design and manufacturing experience with Japanese EV technology and a strong presence in China. Electric vehicles powered by clean electricity are the future, and the electric car of the future will be produced in Trollhättan.”
PSA vai mandar embora 8000 empregados na Europa e fechar uma fábrica perto de Paris:
PSA Peugeot-Citroen to axe 8,000 jobs as euro woes hit key markets
By SCOTT REID

FEARS mounted yesterday of fresh job losses and plant closures in Europe’s bloated car industry after French giant PSA Peugeot-Citroen took the axe to 8,000 posts.
Analysts said other manufacturers considering or engaged in restructuring included Fiat, Opel and Renault as the industry fights chronic overcapacity in a market that has shrunk by 20 per cent since 2007.
Earlier this year, Carlos Ghosn, the chief executive of Renault and its Japanese alliance partner, Nissan, predicted that the first major restructuring by a maker could open the floodgates to a rash of plant closures.
“The day somebody’s able to restructure heavily in Europe, it’s going to force all car makers to do it,” he said in March.
Peugeot’s move, which includes the closure of an entire assembly plant near Paris, may raise concerns closer to home where the news flow has been largely positive of late.
Jaguar Land Rover, Mini, Nissan and Vauxhall are among the car firms investing heavily in their UK operations thanks to strong export demand.
Peugeot has been battling mounting losses and shrinking demand for larger cars such as its 508 and Citroen C5 models. Its Aulnay plant near the French capital, which currently employs more than 3,000 workers, will halt in 2014, becoming the factory to cease production in France for 20 years. Thousands of non-assembly jobs are also to be scrapped across the group.
Chief executive Philippe Varin said: “I am fully aware of the seriousness of today’s announcements. The depth and persistence of the crisis impacting our business in Europe have now made this reorganisation project indispensable.”
Erich Hauser, a London-based automotive analyst with Credit Suisse, said: “This is a company that has run out of options.”
