Founded in 1810 manufacturing horse-drawn carriages and carts, Johnson & Perrott has grown and diversified over the years to become one of Ireland’s leading motor retailers representing seven scar brands through its two dealerships in Mahonpoint and Douglas Road.

Johnson & Perrott Mahonpoint are main dealers for Peugeot, Honda, Land Rover, Jaguar and Volvo, with Opel and Kia based at the Douglas Road dealership.

Peter Russell, Johnson & Perrott Mahonpoint, commented: “We have seen significant growth and innovation across all our brands in recent times. Last year was marked by numerous new model launches from the five marques, huge advancements in on board technology and major progression towards achieving a greener, cleaner and more efficient motoring environment for all.”

He added: “We have an exciting year ahead with Jaguar and Land Rover launching new models mid-year, the first of which will be the new F-Pace SUV from Jaguar which generated huge interest when it previewed in the showroom recently. We are continuing with our sponsorship of Volvo Cork Week in July where we plan to introduce the new Volvo S90 saloon to the Cork market before the rest of the country sees it. Honda has a completely refreshed model portfolio which continues to win awards and Peugeot has ambitious plans for continued growth in the Cork region.”

George Mills, Managing Director of Johnson & Perrott Motor Dealerships commented: “The growth in new car sales is a very encouraging sign of a strengthening economy where consumer confidence is on the increase and the availability of flexible affordable finance gives people more options. We see the recovery in terms of sales but also in our aftersales and service departments where people are servicing and maintaining their vehicles more regularly to maximise performance and ultimately trade in value.
