Scottish motor business, John Clark Motor Group (JCMG) have announced today a second Pentland Jaguar Land Rover showroom opening in Edinburgh. The new eye catching development is open for business from 16th October and will help to support increased demand across Edinburgh for the two brands and provide additional service capacity for our customers based across the City.
Pentland Jaguar Land Rover Edinburgh East located on Whitehill Road, near Fort Kinnaird, is an impressive site with a ten-car showroom, sixty-five used car display area and eleven workshop bays. What’s more there are ample customer parking spaces.
The modern facilities include a customer handover bay, where customers can see their cars unveiled, before driving straight out of the showroom. A luxurious lounge style waiting area complemented by a coffee bar and free wi-fi, plus a colour and trim section giving visitors the perfect opportunity to specify their new Jaguar Land Rover exactly how they want it.
The design complies with Jaguar Land Rover’s new corporate identity which is being rolled out globally and offers a timeless, contemporary and luxuriously equipped showroom that has taken nine months to build. JCMG chose to partner with Robertson Construction, who they have worked with on previous build developments and are currently planning longer-term projects for their existing Pentland Jaguar Land Rover showrooms to meet with manufacturers building and design requirements.
Keith Taylor, managing director, Robertson Construction Eastern Ltd, added:
“We’ve been working with John Clark Motor Group for a number of years delivering high-specification car showrooms, meeting the exacting standards expected by both car manufacturers and automotive customers. During this time, we’ve become trusted partners to the Group. Our involvement in the development of new sites in Edinburgh, as well as in existing sites across the country, has further cemented our position as construction specialists delivering bespoke builds, tailored to our customers’ needs.”
The building brings the Jaguar and Land Rover brands under one roof for the first time in the city and as a result Pentland Jaguar Land Rover Edinburgh East replaces the current Pentland Jaguar showroom on Glasgow Road. However, to offer their Jaguar customers continued flexibility across the city, the John Clark Motor Group have confirmed that their Pentland Land Rover Facility at Newbridge will become a Jaguar Approved Service Centre from 16th October.
Chris Clark, managing director of JCMG, said:
“This truly is an exciting development for the for the group and a significant investment that is justified by the performance of Jaguar Land Rover within Scotland’s capital city. Working very closely with the manufacturer we have put considerable thought into the design of the building to ensure that it delivers a truly premium customer sales and aftersales experience."
Jonathan Inman, brand director for the Pentland Jaguar Land Rover Division added:
“ The team are looking forward to working in this impressive state-of-the-art showroom. It has been an incredibly busy period to prepare for the opening of the site, but absolutely worth it and we are now looking forward to welcoming customers through the doors and both seeing and hearing their reaction to the facilities.”
