Wessex Garages has acquired a dealership from Lookers in Cardiff in order to help it expand with its Nissan franchise.
Wessex has represented Nissan in Cardiff for 12 years and seized an opportunity to purchase the Lookers site which used to house Peugeot so it could have a bigger site focussing on the Japanese brand.
The 52,272 sq ft dealership is located on Hadfield Road in Cardiff.
Keith Brock, managing director of Wessex, said: “We can see how Nissan is growing and will develop further in the next two years and wanted to make sure we were able to maximise on that growth.
“This enables us to display the full range and all aspects of the franchise – crossover and traditional, 4x4, sports – GTR and of course the new Leaf EV (electric vehicle).”
Wessex also has Nissan locations in Newport and Gloucester and in 2011 will have represented the Nissan brand for 25 years.
