Dubai, July 24, 2017 – Al Tayer Motors, one of the UAE’s premier automobile dealerships, has opened its largest multi-purpose facility with 55,000 square metres built-up area over four levels, near the Dubai Police General Department of Traffic – Al Barsha branch.
The facility is being launched with a number of firsts to its credit:
- Introduction of the Ford Approved and Lincoln Certified programmes in the UAE, through the largest pre-owned car showrooms for the brands in the Middle East.
- The first dedicated Maserati Certified Pre-owned cars showroom in the Middle East.
- The first dedicated Jaguar and Land Rover Approved cars showrooms in the GCC region featuring the global ARCH retail standard. The ARCH showrooms are distinguished by a modern sunshine grey rectangular façade; clean simple lines and dedicated Jaguar and Land Rover showrooms on the left and right respectively. Every ARCH facility showcases the expanded Jaguar and Land Rover vehicle line-ups.
- It is the first automotive facility in the UAE that will have a solar power generation system on its roof-top capable of producing 660 Kilowatts of electricity. The system will be able to meet the power requirements of the facility and has the potential to supply electricity back into the DEWA grid.
“Among the main highlights of the facility are the pre-owned cars showrooms. They have been designed to offer vehicles in an unparalleled retail experience through modern spacious areas, which set a benchmark across the region. Customers can choose from the best pre-owned vehicles, of the brands we represent, all of which have undergone a thorough inspection and certification and come with unmatched service & warranty packages offering complete peace of mind,” said Ashok Khanna, Chief Executive Officer, Al Tayer Motors.
Al Tayer Motors’ pre-owned car sales have shown an annual average growth rate of more than 14 per cent over the past five years and are estimated to grow even further over the next year with the opening of this facility.
The state-of-the-art complex, which offers a selection of more than 2,500 vehicles across five brands, includes a central training facility for the dealership.
Biggest Ferrari and Maserati Service centre in the Middle East
The facility features the biggest Ferrari and Maserati service centre in the Middle East, which has 36 service bays (18 each) to facilitate quicker turnaround times for customers who can drive into the reception area for their service appointments. They will be provided with personalised attention by the after-sales team members.
The facility is now fully functional and customers can book their service appointments with ease and convenience via www.altayermotors.com, Al Tayer Motors app (available on IOS and Google Play) or by calling the toll-free number 800 MOTORS (668677).
In addition to the solar power generation system, a number of environmentally-friendly technologies have been used for the water systems, car wash, air conditioning and lighting systems to minimise the facility’s carbon footprint. More than 80 per cent of the water used for washing cars will be recycled. State-of-the-art insulation materials have been used for this facility, which reduces the energy consumed by the Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system.
LED lighting is installed in many areas across the facility enabling reduction in power consumption. Motion sensor technology utilized throughout the facility to reduce energy consumption switches off lighting during quiet or unused periods and switches it on when motion or reduced light levels are detected in the area.
