Saab rescuer facing its own bankruptcy petition
Stockholm • The company that lifted Swedish automaker Saab out of bankruptcy is now facing financial difficulties of its own.
A supplier petitioned a Swedish court Tuesday to declare National Electric Vehicle of Sweden (Nevs) bankrupt. Labo Test, which supplies test equipment for car parts, said Nevs had failed to pay bills of $22,000 since February.
Nevs spokesman Mikael Ostlund didn't immediately answer a request for comment.
The company, owned by a Hong Kong-based group, bought Saab out of bankruptcy last year after a failed attempt to revive the brand by Spyker Cars of the Netherlands.
Though its plan was to make electric cars, Nevs started off with gasoline-fueled models to get production going immediately.
