Saab "Svenska Aeroplan AB (aktiebolaget)" was originally established for the express purpose of building aircraft for the Swedish Air force as Europe moved closer to World War II. As the war drew towards a close and the market for fighter planes evaporated, the company began exploring new markets.
The Saab Automotive Division was created in 1947 and their first production automobile, the "Saab 92" was introduced in 1949. The "Saab 99", introduced in 1968, was perhaps the companies most important model. Predecessors to the Original "92" model had evolved little over the years and the 99 represented the first all new model in 19 years. The "99" included features and innovations that would come to define Saabs for decades.
Prototype for the Saab 92, Saab's first automobile.
In 1989, the Saab auto division was extracted as an independent company and partnered 50/50 with General Motors. In 2000 Saab became a wholly owned subsidiary of GM. Unfortunately automobile manufactures around the world suffered during the market crash of 2008. GM eventually elected to sell the Saab Division. The decision to sell was made in 2008 but due to a series of misfortunes a final sale did not take place until June of 2012.
"Saab" and the companies assets were finally acquired by the Chinese-Japanese consortium, "National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS)". The Saab nameplate will reportedly be retained.
