Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced the appointment of a fourth dealership in India. A new showroom in Chandigarh, due to open in the second quarter of 2012 will be operated by Select Cars Private Limited, the group behind Rolls-Royce Motor Cars New Delhi.
The opening of a dedicated showroom in Chandigarh demonstrates Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s commitment to sustainable growth in India. This is underpinned by the appointment of a dedicated Head of Business Development for the sub-continent and the recent announcement of a new dealership in Hyderabad. The Chandigarh dealership will join Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad as representatives for the revered British automotive marquee in India.
Paul Harris, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Regional Director, Asia Pacific said: “We have made no secret of our ambitions in India, a market with a century-old association with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Strategically we have identified Chandigarh as the perfect place to enter the next phase of expansion in India. We have already seen a healthy amount of interest from Chandigarh based customers and I have every confidence in the potential of this highly important territory.”
He added: “The Rolls-Royce experience is one without peer. The existing New Delhi team has demonstrated they are able to deliver the exceptional purchasing and after sales standards our highly discerning customers expect.”
Strategically, Chandigarh is the next logical step in Rolls-Royce’s growth plans for India. Sustainable growth seen across a diverse mix of sectors, advanced infrastructure and position as capital for both the states of Punjab and Haryana make it an ideal choice for the fourth Rolls-Royce Motor Cars dealership in India.
Yadur Kapur, CEO, Select Cars Private Limited: “Expansion into this important new territory represents the next rational step for our Rolls-Royce business. The investment we are putting into this venture is a testament to the confidence we have in the brand and its potential in the greater Chandigarh area.”
Herfried Hasenoehrl, Head of Business Development, India, Sri-Lanka and Bangladesh added, “India is something of a second spiritual home for the brand. The Indian business elite has embraced the marquee as the Maharajas famously did in the early Twentieth Century. In pressing on with our programme of expansion we are adding a remarkable new chapter to the already extraordinary story of Rolls-Royce in India.”
