Though there's still a lingering pandemic in the country, it hasn't stopped automakers like Geely from opening a new dealership. Following the launch of Geely Quezon Avenue last July, Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), the official distributor of Geely cars in the Philippines, has opened Geely Cagayan de Oro.
Officially opening its doors yesterday, September 1, 2020, the new Geely dealership located in Northern Mindanao is owned and managed by Grand Cars Inc. However, this is not the first time Grand Cars Inc. introduced the Geely brand in Cagayan de Oro.
Back in February, the company officially introduced Geely to Cagayanons during its brand launch held at a local mall. This allowed the automaker to demonstrate and showcase the Geely difference despite not yet having a local dealership at the time.
“The opening of Geely CDO might have been pushed back because of the crisis, but here we are still making things possible for our customers. Geely Cagayan de Oro is finally opening its doors to the public,” said Jan Andrew Po, president of Grand Cars Inc.
With Geely CDO now officially open, locals can now view the automaker's latest models. These include their best-selling crossover, the Coolray, as well as their first-ever mild-hybrid turbo crossover, the Azkarra. Both models offer sleek styling inside and out, a wide array of high-tech features that come as standard, as well as turbocharged 1.5-liter engines that are economical yet powerful.
For Mikihisa Takayama, president and CEO of SGAP, the opening of Geely CDO only means that the SGAP network of dealers continues to grow despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the new dealership will further extend Geely's reach to serve more buyers and let them experience the Geely brand.
“Buyers of brand-new vehicles in Cagayan de Oro and nearby towns will now have access to the advanced technology and outstanding vehicle performance Geely has to offer. We also promise a new level of customer experience as we adopt the Geely brand’s same high global standards in all our facilities and customer handling to the utmost satisfaction of our customers,” added Takayama.
Geely CDO is located along the Cagayan de Oro National Highway at Zone 5 in Cagayan de Oro City and is open to serve customers Mondays through Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM. They are also open on Sundays from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
