Geely Philippines and Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) recently opened its second showroom located along Quezon Avenue.
The second Geely outlet managed by the Autohub Group was originally slated to open last March, but was delayed due to the community quarantine brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Geely has been making waves in the local market since it introduced the Coolray model just nine months ago. Last month, it unveiled another model in its line-up, the Azkarra. Geely ushers in a new generation of Chinese-made that’s packed with features, and an unbeatable value-for-money proposition by offering stylish vehicles and good build quality.
SGAP President and CEO Mikihisa Takayama has warmly welcomed the Autohub Group to the Geely family: “This partnership is a huge step forward in SGAP and Geely’s goal to be a major player in the Philippine automotive industry. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the Autohub Group for trusting and choosing Geely to be part of their growing automotive brand portfolio.”
Autohub Group has one of the largest automotive dealership networks in the country and has been in business for over two decades. It has 19 vehicle brands under the group’s distributorship and dealership business. Through the years, it has managed to grow from a dealership network to become an exclusive distributor and importer of luxury European brands to include, Mini, Lotus, Pagani and Rolls Royce. Autohub Group President and CEO Willy Tee Ten said, “we are looking forward to being part of this emerging brand in the country. We believe in Geely’s potential in the Philippine auto industry under the good hands of SGAP as its local distributor. Thank you for trusting the Autohub Group.”
“This is just the start of SGAP and Geely’s plan to make it big in the Philippine automotive industry. As we begin to expand our nationwide dealership network, according to plan, we want to assure our customers that Geely is here to stay and exceed the expectations of Filipino car buyers,” Takayama said.
Currently, Geely Quezon Avenue will open its doors to its customers from Mondays through Fridays from 8 am to 6 pm.
