Lotus vehicle dealership finds a new home
A MOTOR group is moving its Lotus dealership from Leeds to Yeadon.
JCT600 represents the Lotus brand in the region, and is moving to a new showroom on Rawdon roundabout in Yeadon from a site on Gelderd Road in Leeds.
The site was home to the Porsche Centre for 20 years and was formerly a showroom for pre-owned vehicles.
The motor group still operates the site, which is shared with a JCT600 Bentley dealership – set to be upgraded to a corporate site in the summer.
Jason Smith, brand Director for JCT600, says: “As both Bentley and Lotus are expanding their range of cars, both marques had outgrown their shared premises in Leeds.
“We have a long heritage with Lotus and this move to its own sole dealership will enable us to give more focus to the Lotus brand.
“Lotus is a niche product with a loyal customer following and we expect its new, high profile location to attract a lot of attention.”
Lotus’ after sales operation has moved to JCT600’s Menston facility on Bradford Road.
Headquartered in Bradford, JCT600 is a family business with 50 dealerships throughout Yorkshire, the North East, the Humber, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
