The NEVS 9-3 and NEVS 9-3X concepts have been revealed ahead of their debut later this month.

Externally, the NEVS 9-3 models are distinguished from their Saab 9-3 forebears via a new bonnet, grille, slim LED headlights, front and rear bumpers, and tail-light designs.

The company hasn’t provided many details about the revived 9-3’s drivetrain, except to say the car will have a driving range of around 300 kilometres.

Importantly for a country that suffers from some of the world’s worst air pollution, the NEVS 9-3 will be available with an Always Clean Air Cabin filter, which reduce hazardous particulate matter concentration from 500 to 50 micrograms per cubic metre in under a minute.

Other available features include a Wi-Fi hot spot, over-the-air software updates, and a smartphone app, which can act as a key, and allows for remote battery management and vehicle control.

It seems the revived 9-3 range will be targeted at Chinese corporations, as the car will also feature a fleet management portal, which will allow managers to track and remotely diagnose vehicles.

The new NEVS 9-3 will also be used for a new car sharing and ride-hailing program in the city of Tianjin, China, where the company has one of its factories.

NEVS claims it already has orders for 150,000 9-3 vehicles from a variety of different Chinese companies. The new electric 9-3 range will be made in China, with a full launch scheduled for 2018.
