Vauxhall Auto Mart Ltd. announced plans to open its new showroom for UK-based car magnate Vauxhall.

The company will be opening its state-of-the-art showroom located on Dharmapala Mawatha in June this year. The showroom will display three of Vauxhall’s most recent and aesthetically beautiful models, the Mokka SUV, Corsa and Agila.

“This partnership with Vauxhall, one of the pioneering automakers in the global market will no doubt enhance our current automotive portfolio,” said Pinsiri Fernando, Managing Director of Vauxhall Auto Mart.

“The three models we will be initially introducing will highlight what the Vauxhall brand has delivered to consumers around the world for over a century and we’re extremely happy to bring this international brand to our local market.”

Vauxhall started making cars in 1903. The company’s vision and philosophy has remained throughout 100 years of change and into a forward thinking era.

Since manufacturing its first car- the 6HP in 1903, the company’s portfolio has grown to include a range of cars and vans.

With humble beginning as a bus body building company in 1954, Suncity, the parent company of Vauxhall Auto Mart, has since expanded to include a wide collection of automobiles.

After the economy was opened in 1977, the company started importing used, reconditioned and brand new vehicles.

Fernando is the second largest share holder of Sathosa Motors, which holds the exclusive dealership for Isuzu vehicles.
