- We will assist BAIC to launch their new car called Shenbao. It's a Saab derivatives to be launched in China in late February. There we run performance-shows, and even help with driver training for their customers, says Per Skoglund, CEO of Dynatech.
The Chinese carmaker BAIC purchased the tools to produce Saab 9-5 by the previous owner General Motors in December 2009. now the company will start selling its version of the 9-5 under the name Shenbao, a name that has been used by Saab before.
Shenbao can be translated as "gentleman's treasure". BAIC contacted Trollhätten company Dynatech, formed after Saab's bankruptcy, to initiate a collaboration.
- I think it's because we are sprung from Saab-time and for that we are members of the Saab Performance Team in the firm, says Per Skoglund. cooperation has already borne fruit.
- We've been there (in China) and test driven the car. It fits like a glove for running car shows, says Kenneth Backlund, one of the drivers. , the first show in the launch of the "China-Saab" takes place in February in Hong Kong and the car will primarily be sold in China.
Kenneth Backlund has worked for many years with Saab performance team and will now have to run shows with the car. - A car show is really about showing the car's capabilities as a driver if you have the ability to understand the car's signals. How can you show them? - It is to do absolutely everything you can imagine with a car, for example, to drive on two wheels, says Bäcklund to P4 West.
