The month is almost over, but not the snippets on Saab

Bad news sell newspapers. And they produce hits on a blogging- site. We are having the third in a row record month at SaabsUnited, not only in absolute views per month, but also in views per day. But since Friday the amount of views have dropped dramatically.

I think the next months won’t be that good for SaabsUnited, but that means that Saab is not facing further problems, and this is OK for me.

End of year sale update – New Salem Saab

New Salem Saab are hosting an end of year sale with some ridiculously low prices on 2010 model Saabs. Click here to see the full list of incredibly low prices (and remember that if you’re a paid-up member of the Saab Club North America (and own a Saab) then you could get any of those cars for $1,500 less than those marked down prices!)

The first few days have been tough. It’s a difficult time of year as it is, being between Christmas and New Year.

If you read Darryl’s latest comments on site, then you’ll know he’s had plenty of calls, but foot traffic into the showroom was hampered by some very poor weather.

One of the participating dealers in the campaign, JMK Saab had some huge snow drifts on their lot, up to 7 feet at some stages….

It’s tough going, alright, but they’re going keep on going. In fact, Darryl and one of his colleagues will be opening the showroom on New Years Day to make sure that people have the maximum possible opportunity to call in.

Here’s the stock list again. If you’re in the market for a new Saab then you won’t get a better opportunity than this to pick up a 2010 model at a seriously discounted price. The range and variation in models is huge, so there’s something there for everyone.

Check it out, and say Hi to Darryl for me.

TV spot – New Salem Saab’s December sale

I wrote a few days ago about the big end-of-year sale that will be on at New Salem Saab between Christmas and New Years.

Darryl’s got access to around 70 vehicles that will be extremely attractively priced and I’m hoping to bring the list of what’s on offer very soon.

Until then, however….. Darryl’s just sent over a link to the TV spot that’s been put together for the campaign – just another step in watching the whole thing unfold.

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UJXHYTeAXo

It’s one thing to watch a campaign being developed and executed, but don’t forget that you can participate as well. If you’ve been contemplating an upgrade and you’re in the vicinity, then this is a great opportunity.

Feel free to pass that video around, too. Sharing is caring!

Big US Saab sale event between Christmas and New Years

If you’re in the US and you’ve been contemplating getting a new Saab, you might get the opportunity you’ve been waiting for in the week between Christmas and New Years.

A handful of Saab dealers will be participating in this event, all of them making stock available for New Salem Saab in Albany, NY, a long term friend of SU.

I hope to bring you some more details in the next few days, but here’s a sample of what’s going to be available:

2010 9-3 Sports sedan, 4 cyl turbo, 6sp manual trans, no sunroof, black exterior and black leather interior. Sale priced for current Saab owners at $22,750.

There’ll be around 70 or more 2010 models available at these sort of knockdown prices and thanks to Darryl Carl at New Salem Saab we’ll be following the campaign to see how it goes.

The Truth or Dare ads have been prepared, including radio and TV versions, and they’ll be going strong, starting from today.

In essence, we’ve seen this campaign develop right from the get-go with those Truth or Dare ads and next week will be the big test. It’ll be great to watch the process.

——

This isn’t just an observation exercise, though. It’s a sales event and there are incredibly good cars going at prices that represent amazing value.

As I said at the start, if you’ve been on the fringe of picking up a new Saab for a little while now, you won’t get a better opportunity to bag a big deal than this.

Under $23K for a brand new 9-3 is exceptional value by any measure.

Press Release: Saab Automobile to team up with CATC for China import

This wasn’t really expected until next year, but as things tend to do at the moment, it came out while I was sleeping 🙂

It’s great news because it opens the door for Saab in China once again, but inroads will be small to begin with as the real benefits from being in China come when you can manufacture there.

Saab Automobile to team up with CATC for China import

  • Saab sets up its own organization in China
  • Saab Automobile and CATC agree in principal on import deal for Saab cars and parts for Chinese market
  • Beijing-based CATC established operator in Chinese automotive sector
  • Major step to establish Saab brand in China as expansion of Saab sales operations continues

Trollhättan, Sweden: Saab Automobile today announced a major step in the expansion of its sales operations by announcing a planned agreement with China Automobile Trading Co. LTD (CATC) regarding the import of Saab vehicles and spare parts for the Chinese market. By signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with CATC, Saab re-establishes a firm footing for the brand in the largest car market in the world.

Beijing-based CATC is a government-owned company with many years’ experience in the automotive business and will play an important role in the new Saab organisation in China. Under the MOU, CATC will, on behalf of Saab, assume responsibility of the import of Saab cars and parts to China. A contract sealing the agreement is expected to be signed in the first quarter of 2011, with official sales starting in July 2011.

CATC will serve as an official service provider to Saab China, a sales company that will be established in the coming period. Saab China will eventually take over all distribution and after sales responsibilities in China from Shanghai GM, thus far responsible for Saab sales in China. Saab China will maintain a dealer network that is initially set to comprise around ten dealers.

Announcing the agreement, Saab Automobile CEO Jan Åke Jonsson said: “This agreement is vital for Saab, as it will be the foundation to develop a stronger presence in what is now the largest car market in the world. I am confident that CATC will prove to be the perfect partner for us as we revamp our sales activities in the Chinese market.

“Saab sees strong sales potential in China and we are confident that our product offering will be attractive to both existing and new customers in the market. We look forward to re-establishing the Saab brand in China next year with exciting new products like the new 9-5 Sedan and the 9-4X crossover vehicle.”
