Bristol Street Motors creates 15 jobs as it opens new Renault Dacia dealership


Bristol Street Motors has invested more than £300,000 in York as it opens a new Renault Dacia dealership at Clifton Moor Gate.

As part of the investment at Bristol Street Motors York Renault Dacia, 15 new jobs have been created covering all areas of the business, including servicing, sales and administration. The dealership is also looking to support a young person to gain experience and qualifications by offering an apprentice service technician role.

The site has been fully refurbished using local contractors, bringing it up to the latest manufacturer standards. It features LED-lit vehicle display booths with digital screens on the forecourt, with interactive car configurator tablets inside, which allow customers to preview and cost their ideal specification. To cater for Renault Dacia’s ever-expanding range of electric and hybrid models, seven EV charging points have been installed, allowing customers and visitors to charge their vehicles.

Both private and commercial customers are welcome, with a dedicated business centre manager able to support businesses with their fleet needs.

Tom Wash, general manager at Bristol Street Motors York Renault Dacia, said: “We’re very excited to finally open our doors after a long period of refurbishment work. The site looks fantastic and has a huge range of modern digital features, which properly showcases the new Renault Dacia models.

“Our timing couldn’t have been better. The all new Sandero and Duster have just arrived from Dacia, as have the new Renault Arkana hybrid models – a new modern dealership for new modern vehicles!”
