POSTED ON: 03/05/2016
The State of the Art New Showroom on Airport Road, Cork Will Open in May
Today, Lehane Motors, Toyota and Lexus dealership will make the move to a larger new state of the art showroom on the Airport Road, Cork. This move will allow the addition of 15 new staff within 12 months, bringing the total number to 45, at the dealership which has been part of the Toyota family since 1975 with Macroom motors.
With an investment of over €5million, the new space covers a huge 35,000 square feet. The 12 vehicle showroom will feature the new Toyota retail concept which delivers customers with a new immersive retail experience, delivering a combination of physical, human and digital touch points for a more seamless experience.
As the acknowledged leaders in hybrid technology, six hybrid models are now available across the Toyota range and will all be on show and available to test drive at the new Airport Road dealership. These include the new RAV4, Auris, Prius and Yaris, as well as the new Hilux Proace and the C-HR, which will be arriving to Ireland in November.
Lexus Cork will also showcase the full range of Lexus hybrid vehicles. Lexus is leading the charge in the premium car market with the introduction of hybrid technology across its entire range, which coupled with its cutting edge L-Finesse design, continues to attract fans worldwide. The exciting new Lexus RC F sport coupe and the Lexus RX mid-sized luxury crossover SUV will both be highlights on show for customers.
The new showrooms will be home to Toyota Sales, Car Service, Toyota Parts as well as the Lexus franchise.
Steve Tormey, Chief Executive, Toyota Ireland, said: “At Toyota we’re very proud of all our dealerships across the country. When it comes to growing dealerships we’re very willing to give them all the help they need to relocate as smoothly as possible for staff and customers alike. This will be an exciting opening as customers will have the chance to experience the Toyota retail concept as well as test driving the newest in hybrid technology across both Toyota and Lexus brands. We’re looking forward to the opening of the new dealership on Airport Road.”
Dealer Principal, John Lehane commented on the move: “We’re delighted to make the move into our new space on the Airport Road. We’re also very excited to introduce 15 new staff members to the Lehane team, all of which will be on hand to deliver the top class service our customers have become accustomed to. The new space will be a welcome change for the team as we move into a brand new bigger showroom, which now allows us to take on board the new Toyota retail concept. We’re looking forward to welcoming our new and existing customers at the Airport Road showroom.”
