Saab has confirmed production has restarted production at its plant in western Sweden.
The company, which went bankrupt two years ago and was later bought out by National Electric Vehicle Sweden (Nevs), has resumed production of the 9-3 sedan model.
Although an electric version of the car has been planned, Saab is originally restarting a petrol-powered version of the vehicle.
Mikael Oestlund, a spokesman for Nevs, told the AFP news agency: "It's very similar, you can't change or develop very much in a year. We acquired the assets in August last year."
Mr Oestlund added that the aim is to get production of the model "up and running" and restart working with its 400 different suppliers.
Saab will initially keep production volumes of the 9-3 sedan model "low", Mr Oestlund said, adding that the manufacturer aims "to increase over time according to the market's demand".
According to Saab, there are over 180,000 of its vehicles in daily use in the UK, with the company hailing the "clean Scandinavian design, reliability and exceptional value for money" provided by the models it makes.
