Bristol Street Motors is welcoming a Citroën franchise to its Ford dealership based in Worcester following a £250,000 investment in the Cosgrove Close site.

The dual franchise site features state-of-the-art showrooms for each brand with a brand neutral shared service reception and service centre.

The Citroën dealership boasts a wide range of the brand’s new hybrid and electric models, as well as its existing portfolio of petrol and diesel vehicles. By 2025, Citroën has pledged to produce an electrified version of every car and van in its range.

Motability customers will be welcomed at the Citroën dealership, with a specialist on hand to guide them through the process of choosing the best vehicle for their individual requirements.

In line with social distancing guidelines, the site currently has robust health and safety policies to keep staff and customers safe, including hand sanitiser stations throughout the dealership, the use of face coverings for staff, and demo cars will only be unlocked when a customer asks. Once a customer has viewed the demo car, a member of staff will then fully sanitise the car and lock it again, ready for the next customer.

Johnny Best, general manager at Bristol Street Motors Worcester Citroën, said: “Adding the Citroën dealership to the existing Ford site in Worcester is an exciting move for the Group.

“The showroom looks fantastic, and the team is geared up and ready to provide fantastic service to our customers, in line with our new social distancing procedures.”

Notes to editors:

Vertu Motors plc (which trades under the Bristol Street Motors, Macklin Motors, Vertu Toyota, Vertu Honda, Vertu Volkswagen, Vertu Mercedes-Benz, Vertu Kia and Farnell Jaguar Land Rover brands) was formed in late 2006 to acquire and consolidate UK motor retail businesses. The group was founded as a new entrant into the UK motor retail sector and is listed on the AIM market (UK:VTU).

In 2017, the Group became the first major UK motor retailer to offer customers the ability to purchase a used vehicle entirely online with the launch of Bristol Street Motors Buy Online. The platform enables customers to buy a used vehicle in as little as five minutes if they have the funds in place, arrange financial packages if they don’t, and have the vehicle delivered to any UK mainland home address.

Since flotation in December 2006, the Group has established itself as a major player in the United Kingdom automotive retail sector. The Group currently operates 133 franchised sales outlets and 3 non-franchised sales operations, representing 24 manufacturers, from 110 locations across the UK.
