Plans to restart the Saab production lines and complete up to 100 part-built cars have been vetoed by workers' unions, Autocar has learned.
The company administrators had planned to call some workers back in to complete the part-built cars on the production line, in the hope that the finished cars could be sold.
However, reports from Saab's home town, Trollhattan, suggest that the workers' union has said its members will not return to the plant. Discussions are, however, ongoing.
The situation is further complicated because Saab's plant was sold to an investment firm in order to raise money several months ago, and it is reported to be keen to empty the buildings and find a new use for them if the car company can't be sold as a going concern.
