Ebbett Group take on Hyundai in Tauranga
June 03, 2020 / in News
We are proud to announce that a deal has been struck between Ebbett Waikato Ltd and Farmer Motor Group that will move the Hyundai brand to our current Holden premises in Tuaranga.
As one of New Zealand’s largest dealership groups, we needed to secure a prominent brand to headline the Tauranga site after GM announced its plan to discontinue new Holden sales in this market later in the year.
Our Managing Director, Ben van den Engel, said “We’re really excited to bring Hyundai into the Ebbett Group. It’s a strong brand with a terrific range and we feel it has great prospects in this region. Whilst we remain absolutely committed to a long-term relationship with Holden vehicles and our Holden customers in Tauranga, we had to invest in the future with another name above the door. To secure a brand like Hyundai is fantastic.”
He went on to say “We’ve known Mike and the Farmer team for a long time, we get on well and this suited both parties, so everyone leaves happy.”
Our Ebbett Tauranga Dealership, run by Dealer Principal Julian Clements, expects to start selling new Hyundai vehicles from 1st July.
