One distinctive feature of GenSan’s National Highway, especially as it reaches the junction with the Makar Sarangani Road, are the numerous automobile dealerships that have made the area their home in the city. Perhaps the fact that it is well away from the traffic-heavy city center and features long stretches of road is what makes it an appealing location for these businesses. Almost within spitting distance of each other, one can find the dealerships for big-name car brands: Mitsubishi, Toyota and Ford, plus other luminaries like Hyundai and Subaru. And not long ago, they got a new neighbor from Chinese automaker Geely, thanks to their collaboration with a partner dealer.
Top Gear Philippines reports, that Geely Philippines had recently opened a dealership here in GenSan. It is the second for the automaker in Mindanao and the first in the SOCCSKSARGEN Region. The location is owned and managed by Angcore Motor Group (AMG), founder of the Southern Mindanao Automotive Association and partner dealer of Sojitz G. Auto Philippines (SGAP). AMG has been on the automotive dealership scene for over four decades, and it is this experience that SGAP hopes to tap for Geely PH and its further expansion in southern Philippines.
“Our partnership with Angcore Motor Group is another step forward in Geely Philippines’ bid to expand its dealer network throughout the country,” says SGAP President and CEO Mikihisa Takayama, adding, “I would like to welcome the Angcore Motor Group to Geely’s growing family.” The sentiment was returned warmly by AMG President Tobi Ang, who then notes. “As Geely started to get noticed and make headlines last year with its sales performance and good market reception, I believe this year would be better for the brand.”
Geely PH GenSan dealership is open six days a week, Monday to Saturday, from 8 AM to 6 PM. It marks the seventh active car dealership location for the Chinese automaker in the country. Geely’s latest automotive offerings are the hybrid-electric SUVs Azkarra and Okavango.Image courtesy of Philkotse
