On Saturday 28th July 2012 Jaguar Land Rover officially opened its new dealership in Pune, Maharastra, India. This new dealership forms part of Jaguar Land Rover’s rapid and continued expansion in the growing Indian market for premium vehicles.
Jaguar Land Rover opened its first Indian showroom in June 2009 and now has 15 operational sales and after sales facilities in India. The dealership expansion plan forms part of the Jaguar Land Rover strategy to increase market share in India. It will give customers in India improved accessibility to its product range as well as premium levels of sales and service.
The Pune dealership is located in a prime and upmarket area which is fast becoming a popular location for premium car consumers. The showroom facility spans over 12,000 square feet and boasts a 9 car display area, customer lounge and ample customer parking. In addition, the dealership is supported by a nearby workshop, spanning over 14,000 square feet with 13 service bays, a body shop and paint facility. A total of 60 employees will be based at these two locations.
Dr Ralf Speth, CEO Jaguar Land Rover said:
"In the fiscal year 2011-12, we achieved a sales growth of 157% in the Indian market and we want to maintain this momentum by heightening the awareness of our brands and continuing our dealership expansion programme. We are aiming to have 20 operational dealerships in India by the end of this fiscal year."
