Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) is now welcoming customers to its latest Geely showroom, boosting the Chinese auto brand's presence in Metro Manila.
The opening of the second Geely dealership, strategically situated along Quezon Avenue, was built through a partnership with the Autohub Group.
Originally slated for inauguration last March, the Autohub Geely showroom opening was delayed due to the lockdown enforced by the government.

“This partnership is a huge step forward in SGAP and Geely’s goal to be a major player in the Philippine automotive industry. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the Autohub Group for trusting and choosing Geely to be part of their growing automotive brand portfolio,” Takayama said.
Such move expands the automotive brands under the Autohub group.
Autohub is the local distributor for big automotive brands such as Mini, Lotus, Pagani and Rolls-Royce. Other brands under its dealership network are Nissan, Ford, Hyundai and Changan (Kaicene). IThe Autohub Group has been in the local automotive scene for more than two decades.
For his part, the Autohub Group top honcho expressed excitement and confidence in the Geely brand.
“We are looking forward to being part of this emerging brand in the country. We believe in Geely’s potential in the Philippine auto industry under the good hands of SGAP as its local distributor. Thank you for trusting the Autohub Group,” Tee Ten said.
Official start of business for Geely Quezon Avenue will be on Friday (July 31). The said dealership will be open Mondays through Fridays from 8:00AM to 6:00PM.
