Saab's new owners have shed some light about the upcoming lineup changes of the resurrected Swedish automaker.

Following the reintroduction of the 9-3 Aero, National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) is preparing to launch an electric version of the sedan which at the moment is undergoing a pilot launch in Qingdao, China. After the 9-3 EV will come out, the lineup will be expanded with a third model in the form of a more practical 9-3 SportCombi.

NEVS' communications director Mikael Ostlund told AutoBlog that a 9-3 convertible is also under consideration but a decision has not been taken yet. In the meantime, Saab will continue development of the Phoenix platform which will likely underpin the next-gen 9-3 as well as other models.

Initially, Saab's return will be restricted only to Sweden and China but other markets are being analyzed.
