Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), the official distributor of Geely vehicles in the country, has continuously been opening new dealerships since the start of the year. SGAP targets to open 15 dealerships this year, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a review, SGAP opened its second showroom in Quezon Avenue on July 31 and opened its third dealership in Cagayan De Oro (CDO) a month later. They are managed by Autohub Group and Grand Cars, Inc., respectively.
Geely Lipa, Batangas
Before the year ends, SGAP has successfully opened two new dealerships in Lipa and Zamboanga. The Geely Lipa, Batangas dealership is managed by Gateway Group of Companies, while the Geely Zamboanga dealership is managed by Timothy Motors Inc.
Initially, Geely’s showroom in CDO was the brand’s only dealership outside Metro Manila. With the two new Geely dealerships, SGAP is hopeful to reach more Filipino car buyers outside the Metro. “The opening of new dealerships in other regions is part of Geely’s aim to widen its reach and cater to more customers outside Metro Manila,” said SGAP president Mikihisa Takayama.
Gateway Group of Companies started its automotive ventures in Visayas and Mindanao, and expanded its business network in Luzon 15 years after. Meanwhile, Timothy Motors Inc. offers its excellent services in the Zamboanga Peninsula for around 11 years now.
Customers outside Metro Manila will now be able to reach emerging Geely vehicles such as the Coolray, Azkarra, and the newly-introduced 7-seater Geely Okavango thanks to the brand’s new dealerships in Batangas and Zamboanga.
