Fun fact: Sweden has more innovations per capita than any other nation on earth. Well, that's what Koenigsegg CEO Christian Von Koenigsegg says in a an interview posted on YouTube. Koenigsegg is going to need a lot of innovation and a bit of luck with its forthcoming purchase of Saab, as the Swedish automaker has been an albatross around the neck of General Motors since the day Detroit purchased the company.
In the interview, which is posted after the jump, Koenigsegg points out that Koenigsegg supercar manufacturers is only a small part of a larger, global organization. The company also has the backing of the Swedish government, which gives the group the financial backing to add Saab's much larger operations. Also discussed are new products, which includes the new Saab 9-5, which Koenigsegg feels is a great product, and several other new products he wouldn't discuss.
