Nissan Philippines opens new dealerships in Talisay, Cebu City
The island of Cebu is now home to two new Nissan dealerships. Located in the cities of Talisay and Cebu, both showrooms feature the company's 'Nissan Retail Environment Design Initiative 2.1 (NREDI 2.1).
The opening of the new dealerships come after the company's stellar performance last year when Nissan Philippines Inc (NPI) achieved a 48-percent growth in sales. The company sold a total of 16,897 units last year, beating 2015's 11,420 vehicles total sales figure.
“In the past year, the Nissan brand has grown significantly in the region of Cebu. And to continue to support this growth, we are very excited to be opening not just one, but two new NREDI compliant dealerships, allowing us to enchance our Cebuano customers' experience with the Nissan brand,” said Ramesh Narasimhan, president and managing director of NPI.
As mentioned earlier, both showrooms feature the brand's new retail visual design identity. Chronologically, the Cebu South and Cebu Central dealerships are the third and fourth showrooms to have the NREDI 2.1 look. The first two new showrooms that bear the global retail design are Nissan Sucat and Nissan Marilao.
Nissan Cebu South, which is located along Hi-Way Linao, is operated by the Gateway Group. It is one of the company's latest showrooms that has a total area of more than 3,000 square meters. It has a large showroom floor that can display eight vehicles and has a medium-sized service bay.
On the other hand, Nissan Cebu Central makes its home along A. Soriano Avenue at the North Reclamation Area in Cebu City. It serves as the flagship showroom in the island and takes up an area of over 5,000 square meters.
Like the showroom in Talisay, it too can display up to eight vehicles and has a vast service area that is capable of servicing a fleet of cars. Operating this particular dealership is the AutoCentral Group.
The Nissan Cebu South showroom is open from 8AM – 5PM from Monday to Saturday. Meanwhile, Nissan Cebu Central's showroom is open 9AM – 6PM, Monday to Saturday, and 10AM – 5PM during Sundays and holidays.
