£400m turnover vehicle retailer boosts its northern presence

Drive Motor Retail, a UK automotive seller, has strengthened its presence in North Yorkshire with the opening of a standalone MG dealership in Scarborough.

It marks a strategic separation from the previous setup where both MG and Hyundai brands shared a single space in Scarborough, and now provides a dedicated presence that caters specifically to each brand’s offerings.

The new MG dealership is near Drive’s existing Hyundai dealership on Seamer Road.

As well as retail sales, a team of Motability specialists will be available, offering expert advice on adaptable vehicles.

Servicing and repair facilities, managed by experienced technicians, will also be part of the site’s offerings. This includes MOT testing and a range of MG parts and accessories, which will be located at Drive’s existing Hyundai dealership in Scarborough.

Drive MG Scarborough general manager, Carl Prescott, said: “We are excited to announce the opening of our prestigious new MG dealership in Scarborough. This marks a significant milestone for Drive as we continue to expand our services across the UK.

“I’m thrilled to welcome my dedicated team, including our newly appointed showroom manager, Dave Clarkson, who brings a wealth of experience from renowned brands such as Land Rover and a large Vauxhall Franchise.”

Nationally, Drive Motor Retail has a turnover of about £400m per annum and over 800 staff employed in 23 dealerships across the country.
