Legendary performance car innovator Steve Saleen launches all-new vehicle at 2017 LA Auto Show

CORONA, CA—November 27, 2017, Saleen Automotive, Inc. headed by CEO Steve Saleen, a leader, innovator, designer, manufacturer, racer, and trendsetter in mass customization has been producing vehicles more than 34 years with six generations of Saleen Mustangs, Trucks, and America’s Supercar—the Saleen S7. Steve announces the upcoming launch of the Saleen 1, which has been affectionately referred to as the S1. This newest Saleen vehicle, which will debut at the 2017 LA Auto Show, has been 100-percent designed and engineered by Steve Saleen and his team at their base of operations in California. Saleen Automotive will commence manufacturing of the Saleen 1 immediately.

We invite all media to our Press Conference at the LA Auto Show at the Saleen Display in the West Hall Atrium on Thursday, November 30, 2017, at 10:35am for a rst look at this new vehicle, and to garner complete and accurate details on this build. For those unable to attend in person, the Press Conference will also be live on our Facebook Page. The LA Auto Show opens to the public on Friday, December 1st.

Saleen Automotive Inc. is a US-based corporation headed by CEO Steve Saleen and located in Corona, CA.

Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technologies Group (JSAT) is a new, separately owned automotive company based in China. JSAT is building a billion dollar, modern manufacturing facility to produce Saleen vehicles in China for worldwide distribution.

The genesis of the Saleen 1 began with JSAT purchasing the tooling and remnants of the Artega GT. JSAT asked Steve Saleen to assist in modernizing the Artega GT for today’s sophisticated consumer. In reality, such an “update” was not feasible, which resulted in a new vehicle being designed and built from scratch.

Initially, all Saleen 1 vehicles will be built in North America. Eventually, at an appropriate time in the future, the JSAT factory will assume responsibility for an entirely new line of Saleen vehicles, including the Saleen 1. Additionally, all sales, marketing, distribution, service, and warranty-related activities relating to the Saleen 1 in the United States will be handled domestically.
