Saab has obtained another cash injection from Pang Da, its new Chinese partner, according to reports. The Swedish automaker has received a further order for 630 cars, worth 15 million euros, on top of the 1,300 cars worth 30 million euros already ordered by the Chinese company in May.

The new order follows a visit by senior Pang Da representatives, headed by Chairman Pang Qinghua, to Trollhattan, where Saab’s factory is located. Pang Da is paying in advance for the order, with delivery of the vehicles slated to begin sometime in the third quarter.

The Chinese company has already provided Spyker Cars, which owns Saab, with an advance payment in exchange for Saab cars to be sold in China. It raised nearly US$1 billion in its initial public offering in April, and is looking at taking a 24% equity stake in Spyker at a cost of 65 million euros, for 4.19 euros per share as part of a 110 million euro deal, the reports add. Pang Da is waiting for regulatory approval at home.
