GM Brand Makeover Leaves Saturn Out

Tags:

Peter Valdes-Dapena, senior writer for CNNMoney.com, says that "in its new marketing structure General Motors has identified four 'core' brands. Two other brands might be dropped altogether and another has been relegated, officially, to 'niche' status." He goes on to write that "for the most part, the plan, which was announced Tuesday, is a refinement of a strategy GM has been working on for years. But with congress watching, the automaker seems to be going at it with more public commitment. Essentially, GM has its mainline brand - Chevrolet - and a luxury brand - Cadillac. Instead of a single brand in the middle, GM has the Buick-Pontiac-GMC 'brand channel' which covers pickups to entry-level luxury cars to small economy models. Everything outside of that core is disposable. And now GM is finally looking at disposing more of it."

What Does Saturn Have in Common with the Energizer Bunny?

Energizer Bunny

Mike Morrissey, from the Saturn Communications Team equated Saturns to the popular advertising character, the Energizer Bunny, in a blog written on ImSaturn.com yesterday. Why you may ask? Saturn discovered through a research study conducted by R.L. Polk that 83% of all of the Saturns ever sold in the United States are still actively registered. You may remember that nearly two weeks ago Saturn celebrated the sale of their 4 millionth vehicle in Traverse City, Michigan: a black three door Astra. Of those 4 million vehicles, 3.3 million of them are still in use.
