Swedish government to try and save Saab

It looks like Spyker isn’t the only party who wants Saab alive. Motor Trend reports that the Swedish government is going to hold emergency meetings with officials from GM to try and save Saab.

The closure of Saab could have an enormous effect on Sweden’s economy, hence the government’s interest in keeping them up and running. An estimated 3,400 workers will be left jobless, not including the people working at the 1,100 Saab dealers worldwide.

With plenty of good cars ready to be launched from Saab, I’m really hoping these talks end well. Seeing Spyker not giving up and the government stepping in makes Saab’s future look like it might just be alright. We’ll keep you updated on any developments.
