If the annual volume of Saab's vehicles in the market reaches 10,000 units in China, production could be moved to the country, according to Spyker Cars NV Chairman Victor Muller.
Speaking at the Automotive News Europe Congress, Muller said that the company aims to sell 10,000 cars in China annually in the next three years.
Once this happens, he said that he will be approaching local manufacturers to talk about production. He also said that in the next few months, Saab will announce new distribution arrangements in China.
Earlier this year, Spyker Cars NV, a Dutch maker of luxury sports cars, purchased Saab from General Motors Co. As long as "nothing strange" happens in the auto industry or in the global markets, Muller expects that Saab will be "cash positive" at the end of 2011.
He anticipates that by 2012, Saab will have a much lower breakeven point than when it was under previous owners GM at 85,000 annual unit sales.
Muller also claimed that he expects the brand to hit a volume of 125,000 in that year. Muller announced that in 2008, Saab sold 98,000 cars globally.
He said that sales will "bounce back" as within the next two years, Saab will offer new products -- the 9-5, 9-4X crossover and a new 9-3.
