In 1985, General Motors founded Saturn LLC as a subsidiary with its own assembly facility in Tennessee. Aimed at markets dominated by Japanese automakers, Saturn started with entries in the compact sedan and coupe as station wagon classes. Before GM’s discontinuation of the brand in 2010, Saturn had already expanded its lineup to include crossovers, hatchbacks, quad coupe, roadster, and even a minivan. The brand was most successful in its earliest years when it was quite popular for its “no-haggle pricing.”
Here are some interesting facts about Saturn:
