Lookers has opened the doors to its new £4.6 million Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) dealership in Bishop’s Stortford.

The AM100 PLC’s new JLR Dual Arch Concept facility employs 42 people and is one of a series of openings for the premium brands so far this year.

In January Sytner Group opened its new Guy Salmon JLR facility in Bristol, while Harwoods opened its three-storey dealership in Bristol last month.

Sytner also completed construction of its new JLR facility at Northampton during May.

David Cooper, franchise director at Lookers Jaguar Land Rover, said: “This £4.6m investment is a really positive sign for the future, both for the local economy here and our commitment to the local area, but also for the wider car industry.

“We’re delighted to make this investment in Bishop’s Stortford, which will now boast the most modern Land Rover showroom in the country and offer a first-class customer experience for anyone looking to buy their dream vehicle or who is in need of our aftersales services.”

Shaun McElhinney, head of business at Lookers Jaguar Land Rover, said: “With the phasing out of petrol and diesel vehicles in the coming years, we’ve ensured this new state of the art facility is fully equipped with full electric vehicle facilities.

“As well as being a sign of Lookers’ commitment to sustainability and taking a leading role in the EV rollout, we’re delighted to be able to support our customers with the expertise, information and services to support them to make the transition when they are ready.”
