For those who don’t know, Saab, a Swedish airplane manufacturer, began producing vehicles in 1949 and expanded to the US in 1956. 

Peter Daul, former Senior Saab Engineer and current NEVS program director, headed the secret electric car project. 

According to Carup, the NEVS Emily GT is powered by four 120-hp electric motors, one on each wheel, for 480 hp total. 

Meanwhile, an updated version is in the works with a total of 653 hp and 2,200 nm (1,622 lb-ft) of torque, enabling 0 to 60 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds. 

In addition, a 175 kWh battery will allow the electric car can travel over 1,000 km (621 mi) on a full charge. 

However, the early prototypes are equipped with a 52 kWh battery taken from the Saab 9-3. 

The Emily GT is claimed to be capable of driving more than 1000km (621 miles) between charges, thanks to a huge 175kWh battery.  

A high-performance variant of the Emily was also in the pipeline, with planned outputs of 653bhp and 1623lb ft. This would cut its 0-62mph sprint time down from 4.6sec to 3.2sec. 

The Emily prototypes use a 52kWh battery from the NEVS 9-3, an electric conversion of the Saab of the same name.
