At the end of January, Automotive News Europe reported,

"........Saab AB withdrew NEVS' right to use the Saab name two years ago after NEVS sought protection from creditors...."

So it seems we have two Chinese automakers who have acquired Saab technology, but neither with the right to use the name "Saab". Apparently that name will remain with the Saab AB defense firm in Sweden.

According to gasgoo.com an in-wheel motor manufacturer has merged with NEVS,

"National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB (“NEVS”), a subsidiary of the Company, has acquired Protean Holdings Corp. (“Protean”) by effecting a merger of Protean with and into Virtue Surge Limited (“Virtue Surge”), a subsidiary of NEVS (the “Acquisition")."

Gasgoo also says that Protean is world leader of in-wheel electric motor technology for passenger cars.

Excellent illustrations of the technology is shown at:

Evergrande New Energy on a roll

Gasgoo Automotive news tells us that Evergrande New Energy Auto, new owner of Protean in-wheel motors, now has agreements with 60 well known global automotive suppliers. And in addition, it is going forward with plans for NEV factories in both Guangzhou, and Shenyang of Liaoning Province.
Other reports suggest that while it is part owner of Faraday Future, through further investment it may become the wholly owner of Saab-spawned NEVS auto.
The link below reveals just some of the inroads it has made in becoming more than a successful realty, but now also a serious player in the Chinese competition for new energy vehicle dominance.
