AutomotiveNews in Europe happily reports that Saab is definitely back in action with their new owner, National Electric Vehicle Sweden, or NEVS. The first new model to be rolled off of the Trollhattan assembly line next Monday is the next-generation 9-3 sedan.

The last time a car rolled off of Saab’s assembly line was in April 2011 and bankruptcy was filed later in December that year.

Confirmation comes after AN spoke with NEVS’ spokesman, Mikael Oestlund, who said, “Yes, we will start actual production on Monday,” though noting it will begin at a “humble” pace.

The new 9-3 will be powered by a gas turbocharged engine with an electric variant originally destined for the Chinese market coming in 2014. It will be sold in Europe and China to begin with while there exists a distinct possibility for them to come stateside—eventually.
