Dealer dominance not at the expense of competition

A competition probe into the new car market on Jersey has found that its residents are not being ripped off despite one dealer group's dominance.

The review by the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority found that one motor retailer, the Jacksons and Motor Mall group, supplied half of all cars sold on the island.

However, it said, there was no evidence of any dealership abusing its position within the market and it ruled the industry was largely working as it should be.

The review said that although new cars in Jersey were more expensive than in the UK, this could be explained by higher delivery charges and running costs for local dealerships, said the Jersey Evening Post.
