Lehane Motors, the Toyota and Lexus dealership has made the move to a larger new state of the art showroom on the Airport Road, Cork. This move will allow the addition of 15 new staff within 12 months, bringing the total number to 45, at the dealership which with Macroom Motors has been part of the Toyota family since 1975.
With an investment of over €5 million, the new space covers a huge 35,000 square feet. The 12 vehicle showroom will feature the new Toyota retail concept which delivers customers a new immersive retail experience, delivering a combination of physical, human and digital touch points for a more seamless experience.
As the acknowledged leaders in hybrid technology, six hybrid models are now available across the Toyota range which will be on show and available to test drive at the new Airport Road dealership. These include the new RAV4, Auris, Prius and Yaris. Lehane Motors opening is happening just prior to the arrival of the new Hilux in June, as well as the new Proace and C-HR SUV which will be arriving in Ireland later this year.
Lehane’s will also showcase the full range of Lexus vehicles. Lexus is leading the way in the premium car market with the introduction of hybrid technology across its entire range, which coupled with its cutting edge L-Finesse design, continues to attract fans nationwide. The exciting new Lexus RC F sport coupe and the Lexus RX mid-sized luxury crossover SUV will both be highlights on show for customers.
Steve Tormey, Chief Executive, Toyota Ireland, said: “We’re very proud of Lehane Motors new Dealership in Cork. This will be an exciting opening as customers will have the chance to experience the Toyota retail concept as well as test driving the newest in hybrid technology across both Toyota and Lexus brands.”
Dealer Principal, John Lehane commented on the move: “We’re delighted to make the move into our new space on the Airport Road. We’re also very excited to introduce 15 new staff members to the Lehane team, all of which will be on hand to deliver the top class service our customers have become accustomed to. The new space will be a welcome change for the team as we move into a brand new bigger showroom, which now allows us to take on board the new Toyota retail concept. We’re looking forward to welcoming our new and existing customers at the Airport Road showroom.
