Saturn: A Unique Brand in the US
Started with a bright future, Saturn, also known as the Saturn Corporation or Saturn LLC, was owned by the famous multinational American manufacturer General Motors (GM) as its subsidiary. Marketed as a different kind of brand, Saturn was operated independently from its parent company and was GM's attempt to compete with Japanese automakers. Having its own assembly plant, unique models and a separate retailer network, Saturn offers a wide range of vehicle types ranging from the sedan, coupe, minivan, hatchback to the station wagon, a compact crossover, roadster and electric cars. Founded on January 7, 1985, just as NASA employed Saturn rockets to beat the USSR to the moon in the space, the Saturn Corporation was the response to Japanese automobile manufacturers in the economy car filed race. But due to poor sales and GM's bankruptcy reorganization, Saturn brand has been discontinued as of the 2009 model year, and its operation method and design ideas still inspired many automakers.
Being Unique in Operation
Positioned as a division to sell small, low-priced cars, Saturn knows that only being different from other famous and upscale brands in GM could it have a chance to occupy a share in the automobile market.

Models from it were among the most fuel-efficient vehicles of their day. In its earlier years, Saturn enjoyed some success, fueled by buyers who were in love with its another unique approach to customer relations that include no-haggle pricing, which could let car dealers get rid of concerns about price battle and become more devoted to products themselves. What's more, Saturn also established strict employee training system, which is the new employees must accept training in thought for five days and in a profession for 100-150 hours. And the labor union comprised of management and workers entitles employees to improve production quality.
