Huge Nissan dealership opened in London by Renault dealer

Nissan has further strengthened its presence in the capital with the opening of one of its largest dealerships in Europe by alliance partner Renault Retail Group.

Nissan London West occupies a huge and prominent site on the A40 Western Avenue in Acton, with 20-bay workshop and a showroom able to comfortably display around 20 models and a forecourt with extensive customer parking and accommodating more than 100 approved used Nissans.

It is run by Renault Retail Group, the retail arm of Nissan's alliance partner Renault, which also has Nissan dealerships in Birmingham, Bolton, Leicester, Liverpool and Wirral.

Nissan London West has also been appointed as a specialist electric vehicle and high performance car centre, offering the Leaf and GT-R and 370Z alongside the carmaker's standard car range.

And the enormous 20-bay high tech workshop, which is equipped with the latest Nissan diagnostic technology and staffed by highly-skilled manufacturer-trained technicians, is ideally placed to offer customers across West London the highest levels of aftersales care.

Andrew Feehilly, general manager at Nissan London West, said: “We are extremely proud to be opening one of the largest Nissan dealerships in Europe here in London – one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

“Nissan is a growing brand with an exciting future and so a large facility like ours in such a prominent position on one of the busiest roads in and out of the capital is ideally placed to succeed."

    This will become common now with all the issues Renault has shared sites and shared overheads makes sense, doesnt help the other established sites in the area however

      @Unknown - Renault is dying and they hope they can resurrect it on the back of Nissan it could hurt Nissan as a brand and that is a serious issue.

    Aside from LCVs, Renault is pretty much finished in the UK, what else were RRG going to do with such a huge, expensive site? A 20 bay workshop for a sub 2% franchise? Something needed to be done and at least this is sort of in-house, saves the embarrassment of moving Renault London West to a railway arch somewhere, and gets Nissan a proiminent site in (near) the capital.

    WLMG would not be able to match the investment of RRG, their sites are already over due development and short on space
