The Swedish automaker has been struggling since GM cut it loose in 2009. Ironically, production of the 9-4X began in February at GM's Ramos Arizpe, Mexico plant and is being built alongside its platform-mate, the Cadillac SRX.
Saab plans to re-open its Trollhattan, Sweden plant by early August now that it has signed deals with Chinese automakers and other sources to help its debt to suppliers. Saab's suppliers held shipments until Saab could pay its debts. With help from Chinese automakers and others Saab hopes to have the Swedish plant up and running by early August.
