SSANGYONG has opened six new dealerships – and is on the hunt for many more.
The news comes ahead of the arrival of the new Tivoli B-segment SUV this summer – a car that Paul Williams, the CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, told Car Dealer would be a ‘game changer’ for the manufacturer.
The new dealerships are:
- Barkers SsangYong – Preston, Lancashire
- Formula One, Newcastle – Newcastle-upon-Tyne
- Hidsons – Rainham, Kent
- Lewis SsangYong – Chichester, West Sussex
- Motor Mall Guernsey – The Forest
- Motor Mall Jersey – St Helier
Williams said: ‘The addition of the Tivoli – a fifth, and already highly acclaimed, model to our comprehensive range – has really accelerated interest in the franchise.
‘Confidence in the SsangYong brand was already growing throughout last year as our sales performance shows, but the pending arrival of the Tivoli crossover into the highly competitive B-segment has really fired up inquiries from potential dealers.
‘We’re also now hearing from businesses representing premium brands looking for another string to their bow.
‘We warmly welcome these new additions to the SsangYong franchise, and look forward to watching them grow with us over the coming months and years.’
SsangYong is still looking for the right quality of dealers to represent the brand in a number of locations, and current open points include:
- Greater Manchester
- Isle of Man
- Kings Lynn
- London & South-East
- Mid & North Wales
