Saab’s automotive division closed in 2011 when General Motors abandoned it. The Swedish brand is currently developing products for the military industry.
The world regretted Saab’s departure from the automotive arena. But a Taiwanese businessman continues to do business.
Scandinavia Asia Corporation (SAC) has represented the Swedish brand since 1980 and is still active today. In Taiwan, SAC has 6 Saab Service Centers. Twelve other authorized service centers are located elsewhere, one of which opened last year.
“We are doing our best to keep Saab on the roads in Taiwan. This is our direct responsibility: in Taiwan, all Saab cars have been sold to SAC,” said company president Salo Yang.
The company still uses spare parts, which it buys mainly from GM. In order to maintain customers’ cars, the Taiwanese firm can redo its own parts. Neither the Saab Group nor GM helps the Taiwanese company.
