Two new high-end car brands will soon call Botany Downs home as the finishing touches are put on a large new dealership on Ti Rakau Drive.
Armstrong Motors managing director Rick Armstrong has confirmed that Hyundai will sit along Mercedes-Benz in the new complex.
The 11,000 m2 site boasts nearly 5500 m2 of floor space and Mr Armstrong says it was always built for two brands.
“We now have two exceptional franchises for the site that complement each other really well, and it will create a new automotive centre that east Auckland has lacked up until now,” said Mr Armstrong.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to be open in early June with Hyundai following shortly after.
“The new dealership has been in the making for two years as land was found, designs were finalised and the build program completed,” said Mr Armstrong.
The new dealership will trade as East Auckland Hyundai.
“We are incredibly happy with the outcome. The dealership is in the centre of one of New Zealand’s fastest growing areas and now having Hyundai – a quality high volume brand with a wide range of vehicles, it will complement Mercedes-Benz, and is a perfect fit for us,” said Mr Armstrong.
The Armstrong Motor Group now represents 19 automotive brands over 13 locations across New Zealand.
