JCT600 has relocated its Lotus dealership from Gelderd Road in Leeds to a new centre in Yeadon.
Its location is known locally as ‘the JCT roundabout’.
The dealership has moved from Leodis Court where it shared a site with JCT600’s Bentley dealership, which will be upgraded to the new Bentley corporate identity in the summer.
Lotus’ new dedicated premises, which was home to JCT600 Porsche Centre for 20 years and more recently was a showroom for specialist pre-owned vehicles, will enable the marque to display 10-12 cars in the showroom and a further 15 vehicles on the forecourt.
JCT600 has represented the Lotus brand in Yorkshire for more than 30 years,
Jason Smith, JCT600 brand director, said: “As both Bentley and Lotus are expanding their range of cars, both marques had outgrown their shared premises in Leeds.
“We have a long heritage with Lotus and this move to its own sole dealership will enable us to give more focus to the Lotus brand.
“Lotus is a niche product with a loyal customer following and we expect its new, high profile location to attract a lot of attention.”
Lotus’ aftersales operation has moved to JCT600’s Menston facility on Bradford Road where it joins Seat and Peugeot.
