Hendy Group has rehomed its Moke electric vehicle franchise from Poole into new surroundings in Southampton, just off the M3 in Eastleigh.
The move has created a dedicated sales manager role for the Moke brand, with the appointment of Steve French.
Hendy Group is also expanding its Nissan, Renault and Dacia operation in Eastleigh with work now underway for a major new state of the art dealership complex on a brownfield site in nearby St George’s Way.
Harry Pearson, head of brand for Hendy Performance, said the move from Poole brings Moke into the heart of the division.
“Hendy Performance is a key area of growth for the group this year and having Moke in our Southampton centre gives our customers and potential buyers easy access to the range,” he said.
“Southampton offers the perfect location for customers along the south coast while our Mokerepresentation in Exeter caters for the south west market.
Pearson said the electric Moke is the centrepiece of the new showroom, with the car proving a popular choice for those looking for a fun vehicle and zero emissions.
The vehicle will also take centre stage at a number of events that the brand plans to attend in the region, including the Goodwood Members Meet 15th – 16th April and at Cowes Week from 29th July until 4th August.
