Sky Roadster Heralds New Design Direction For Saturn Brand

Tags:

Saturn today released the first visual rendering of its upcoming sports roadster and announced that the two-seater will carry the name Sky. The rear-wheel drive Sky will showcase new design cues that will appear across Saturn's future products as the brand renews and extends its portfolio over the next 24 months. The Sky is scheduled for public debut in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show in January. It will arrive at Saturn retailers in early 2006. The Sky will be built at GM's Wilmington, Delaware, assembly plant. It borrows its name from a Saturn concept that was shown in 2002, but there is no design link between the two vehicles.

"The new form vocabulary of Saturn has been influenced by GM's design talent from around the globe," said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Design. "Taut, controlled lines combine with harmonious and fluid surfacing to create a technical and dynamic feel."
