- NEVS has developed a super sports car called Emily, showcasing “in-wheel” engine technology and capable of driving more than 1000 kilometers on a single charge.
- NEVS is seeking a buyer to continue Emily’s production. Prototypes are drivable, and the project is about a year and a half away from being production-ready.
- Emily is a remarkable super sports car with advanced features and a dynamic design, and it needs a buyer to be mass-produced.
The Emily project from NEVS, the Chinese-backed company that acquired Saab’s assets in 2012 after the Swedish carmaker faced multiple financial challenges, is a super sports car that has been kept under wraps for years. This unique project was designed to showcase the advantages of using “in-wheel” engine technology and it was built entirely from scratch. With a team of talented engineers, NEVS built a car ahead of its time with advanced features and a dynamic design that we have never seen before.
NEVS’ Super Sports Car Project with Unusual In-Wheel Motors and Massive Battery, Capable of Driving Over 1000km on a Single Charge, Finally Revealed After Years of Secrecy
This project was so secret that even the public was not allowed to share in the details until now. Plint was given the exclusive privilege to document the entire production of the Emily from the drawing board to the test drive. Plint filmed, photographed, and created an instruction book that describes how Emily is built on NEV’s heritage, experience, and expertise.
The Emily GT is claimed to be capable of driving more than one thousand kilometers or 621 miles in between charges, thanks to a massive 175 kilowatt-hour battery. It also uses in-wheel motors, which is quite unusual for electric cars, giving the vehicle a total of 484 horsepower. This gives finer control of torque vectoring, and apparently, the car could turn without using the steering wheel, just using the motors themselves.
NEVS Puts Super Sports Car Emily Up for Sale: Drivable Prototypes Ready for Production
The Emily project is now up for sale, and NEVS or Saab CEO Nina Salander is seeking a buyer. According to Peter Dahl, program director and former Saab engineer, the project is about a year and a half away from being production-ready. He said everything is in place to take it further into production, and the prototypes are completely drivable except for the airbag and auto braking systems.
While it is unfortunate that NEVS has been put into official hibernation due to financial problems, we hope that someone will buy the company and continue the production of the Emily. It has a good brand, and people love the Saab brand. It would be a shame if this car, which is ahead of its time, is not given the chance to be mass-produced.
NEVS’ Emily Project Awaits Continuation of Production by Potential Buyer
We believe that there is a high likelihood that another company will come along and buy NEVS. Due to the Saab brand’s popularity, it’s probable that a Chinese company, other than Evergrand, will acquire NEVS.
