Existing Land Rover San Diego facility now authorized to sell and service Jaguar vehicles
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (January 17, 2019) – Holman Automotive, one of the largest privately-owned dealership groups in the United States, today announced it has expanded upon its longstanding partnership with Jaguar Land Rover North America with the addition of a Jaguar franchise to its existing Land Rover San Diego facility. Effective immediately, Land Rover San Diego is authorized to sell and service new and pre-owned Jaguar vehicles.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jaguar to our Holman Automotive family of dealerships. We have been incredibly proud to represent the Land Rover brand at our dealerships in San Diego and Denver for many years and we believe the addition of Jaguar to our San Diego location will further strengthen this world-class retail facility,” said Brian Bates, President and CEO, Holman Consumer Services. “We look forward to continuing to provide an exceptional customer experience representative of our Holman values and the premier Jaguar Land Rover brand to consumers throughout the region.”
Land Rover San Diego is now operating as an authorized Jaguar dealership and is currently in the process of transitioning all Jaguar sales and service operations to its facility at 9455 Clayton Drive, San Diego, California. With the addition of Jaguar to its Land Rover San Diego location, Holman Automotive is now comprised of 37 dealership franchises representing 18 brands from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest.
“We are pleased to see Land Rover San Diego expand its product offerings with the addition of the Jaguar franchise in the southern California area,” said Tassos Panas, Vice President of Network Development, Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC. “We are also very excited that the Holman Automotive team will be building a brand new ARCH facility that will showcase both brands and service customers in a new state-of-the-art retail environment, expected to open early next year.”
Jaguar Land Rover has embarked on an aggressive product expansion throughout the United States, establishing a new all-time U.S. sales record for its combined brands with more than 122,000 units sold in 2018, a seven percent increase from 2017. Growth of the Land Rover brand continues to be fueled by its renowned Range Rover lineup and the highly-anticipated return of its iconic Defender model to the U.S. market. For Jaguar, 2018 marked the expansion of the PACE family of SUVs to include the E-PACE compact performance crossover along with the brand’s first ever all-electric mid-size performance SUV, the I-PACE.
