Saab Production Halt Continues, Could Last Days

An interruption of production at Saab factories in Sweden is continuing today, according to Automotive News. The dispute between Saab and its suppliers over unpaid bills means the automaker doesn’t have enough parts to build new vehicles.

Production stopped yesterday and may not restart for several days. Although Saab claims it is working with suppliers to resolve any invoice issues, spokeswoman Gunilla Gustavs told Automotive News the production delay could last several days. Saab had to briefly halt production on its assembly lines last week for similar reasons.

A Saab spokeswoman in the U.S. told us yesterday the production issues won’t delay deliveries of new cars to American consumers. For now, Saab and parent company Spyker say talks with suppliers are ongoing, and that the company retains sufficient liquidity to produce new vehicles.
