Updated Mar 29, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Expect Geely to open 15 more this year.

Chinese car brand Geely has opened another dealership along the busy streets of the Metro strategically located in Makati City. The new Geely Makati will be managed by the brand’s official distributor of its vehicles in the country, the Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP).

SGAP now manages two dealerships in the country, namely the new Geely Makati and its flagship dealership, Geely North EDSA. One can expect that the future for the new Geely dealership in Makati is bright as Geely North EDSA managed to seamlessly expand the Chinese car brand’s business network during its first years competing in the local market.

Geely is on the rise with the business expansion efforts it is putting out since its introduction in the country in 2019. Last year, SGAP landed on CAMPI and AVID’s number 10 spot among the top-selling passenger vehicle brands in the country. The Chinese car brand is expected to open over 15 more dealerships this year.

With the new Geely Makati opening, residents near the dealership can get a closer look at the Chinese car brand’s lineup, including the Coolray, Azkarra, and Okavango. The Geely Coolray is the brand’s best-selling unit for the longest time, while the Geely Azkarra is a 5-seater compact crossover that offers a mild-hybrid system. Lastly, the 7-seater Geely Okavango is the brand’s latest addition to the lineup.

“It’s a good sign for the business that we are able to open another dealership in Makati under SGAP, following the rise of Geely’s flagship dealership in North EDSA in 2019. This is a welcome development for the business. An indicator that during this time of global struggle, our brand is being well-received by people and that we still manage to survive and thrive,” said Mikihisa Takayama, SGAP President and CEO.
