Reports are coming in that 13 Nissan-owned West Way dealerships are being sold as part of the manufacturer’s strategic business review designed to strengthen its portfolio.
Various West Way dealerships are going to existing Nissan dealers, including Yeomans in Aldershot and Basingstoke, Glyn Hopkin in Mill Hill, and Hendy in Southampton. The remaining nine sites will be bought by as yet unnamed investors.
Andrew Humberstone, MD of Nissan Motor GB, said: “We have conducted a strategic review of our business operations to focus on sustainable profitability for the future, aligned to our global Nissan Next transformation strategy.
“West Way is a high performing business that delivered record results in 2021 and provides excellent levels of customer service.
“This, combined with the launch of Nissan’s exciting and electrified new products, ensures it is a very attractive proposition for these investors.
“They are able to leverage the synergies of their existing business units and ensure these dealer sites can continue to grow and maintain the great experience our customers are accustomed to receiving.”
