Duke University – 1972 SAAB Electric Sonett III

Posted on 01. Jan, 2007 by in 1970-1979, 2000-2009, 97 (Sonett II & III)



The Electric Car Project at Duke University “Project EE149” is a 1972 Saab Sonett III, similiar to the 1974 SAAB Sonett III posted previously.

I look forward to any new developments in this electric SAAB project. It appears that there is a noticeable trend now with individuals or academic institutions such as Duke University who are choosing the lightweight construction of the SAAB Sonett III as the vehicle of choice for EV research and development.

It appears that this project is still in the works. For more information on this project, please visit:
