Car Dealer Live 51: Robin Luscombe from Luscombe Motors

Time 1 year ago

What makes a successful business was just one of the many topics for discussion with Robin Luscombe on Car Dealer Live.

The founder and managing director of Luscombe Motors in Leeds joined us on June 9 on our YouTube channel.

After three decades in the motor trade and 28 years’ experience with Suzuki, Luscombe established his own business with the Japanese firm 10 years ago.

Since then, it has become highly regarded among its customers and has expanded with Mitsubishi and MG franchises, all run from its site in Leeds, West Yorkshire. We chatted about how he set up the business, what’s changed since he established it and what the future holds.  

Other topics discussed included:

  • How the customer mentality has changed over the years
  • Supply and demand
  • The joys of Jimny
  • Sales during lockdown
  • The perils of establishing a business
