Saab, the Swedish automaker, is trimming staff in its U.S. headquarters and moving the main office from Connecticut to Atlanta.

Saab Cars USA Inc. said it will transfer about 20 of its 167 employees from its U.S. office in Orange, Conn. Another 100 or so employees will be hired in Atlanta as the move is made.Hans Halbach, executive vice president for sales and marketing, said Atlanta was chosen for its lower tax rates and property values.

``Saab is taking this action, while its U.S. sales performance is essentially equivalent to last year, to prepare itself for the increased competition that is projected for the decade ahead and to position the organization in the United States to support the new range of Saab automobiles which will arrive in the beginning of the mid '90s,' he said.

Saab will begin operations in Atlanta next April; no site has been selected.
