Buyers of Saab's 9-5 continue to go without the security of a new-car warranty, but news of expanded parts supply may offer some small comfort.

Saab Automobile Parts AB, which remained outside of last year's Saab Automobile bankruptcy filing, announced the establishment of a new 50-strong workforce in Trollhattan focused on the purchase, sales and marketing of parts for Saab cars.

The company has also recruited engineers and specialists to provide technical information and support to the brand's authorised workshops across the world.

The new office joins the existing Saab Automobile Parts operations in Nykoping, Sweden, where the company's logistics and distribution are managed.

“Today there are 1 million Saab cars on the roads worldwide and Saab Cars Australia continues to provide a full range of aftersales support for the Australasian network, Saab Cars Australia boss Stephen Nicholls said.

“The last few months have been a busy and challenging time for all of us at Saab. We now believe we can demonstrate that we have a stable base to develop our business,” he said.

With its Saab Automobiles parent now out of action, Saab Cars Australia's business will be limited to offloading its existing fleet of unsold cars, and maintaining a parts and service network for existing customers.

Reports earlier this year suggest that Saab's administrators have received expressions of interest from a number of potential buyers, including India's Mahindra & Mahidra, China's Youngman and Turkish private equity firm Brightwell Holdings.

BMW is also reported to be among the brand's possible suitors.
