- Trollhättan Assembly
Trollhättan Assembly is a General Motors
automobilefactory in Trollhättan, Sweden. The factory opened in 1947under the ownership of Saab, then passing to Saab Automobile, prior to the GM takeover, in about 1990.
It was founded on the site of Trollhättan airfield, by the aircraft manufacturer Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget (SAAB), an aircraft manufacturer since 1937 and based in
Linköping, Sweden. The first automobile off the line was the Saab 92, a front-wheel drive, two-stroke, transverse-engined passenger vehicle.
The SAAB company was a small-scale manufacturer of niche automobiles, which have always been front-wheel driven. The first cars were two-stroke, with later use of a
four-strokeengine, from 1967. The company then became famous for its pioneering development of the turbocharged engine in family cars and for its continued use of this method of induction.
The Saab 92,
Saab 93, more notably the Saab 96and the Saab 99attained great success in motor sport, emanating from the tiny Competition Department at Trollhättan. The Saab 96 will be forever linked with that of Erik Carlsson, in this regard.
Production of the next Saab 9-5 will take place at the Opel Russelsheim plant in Germany. The next Saab 9-3, scheduled to be based on the
Delta II platform, will remain at Trollhattan.
