Endeavour Automotive has unveiled plans for a new flagship Hyundai dealership in North London as the retailer looks to enhance its customer offer in line with growing demand for Hyundai vehicles.
Hyundai sales outpaced the market in 2016, growing 5% on 2015 and passing 92,000 registrations. This continued upward trend influenced Endeavour Automotive’s decision to relocate its North London showroom to a brand-new two-storey solus site in New Southgate, London.
Due to open in quarter three of 2017, the impressive new site boasts more than 1,000 square metres of display space including a 13-car showroom and Hyundai UK’s first indoor used car display area – capable of holding 34 cars – on the building’s first floor. The plans also make allowance for a nine-bay workshop with dedicated MOT, tyre-fitting and wheel-alignment stations, plus integrated space has been set aside for car care with two dedicated valet bays, plus a wet-wash area.
The site will see staff numbers increase more than 20% in anticipation of greater sales volumes, boosted by its prime location and Hyundai’s mix of popular models. This growth projection also considers commitments by the Korean brand to bring a host of technology-packed fuel-efficient models to the UK – spearheaded by the IONIQ, the world’s first car available with three distinct powertrains.
John Caney, Managing Director of Endeavour Automotive, said: “We take great pride in establishing a flagship site with Hyundai at our new North London location. Encompassing Hyundai’s latest dealer-identity styling and customer environment features, the two-story development will be a landmark for Endeavour and Hyundai that should boost our sales while contributing to Hyundai’s ongoing success.”
The new corporate identity used for Hyundai North London reflects Hyundai’s rapid pace of change and the retailer’s focus on providing the highest standards of customer service. The Hyundai North London team already benchmarks itself on delivering top customer satisfaction and the new dealership emphasises this approach, combining open space, modern furnishings and the latest technologies to deliver a premium customer experience.
