Mr. Phillip Lu, Business & Marketing Operations General Manager of Motor Image Group – the exclusive distributor of Subaru products and services in eight markets in Asia – shared: “Vietnamese customers have shown great interest in Subaru due to the brand’s commitment to safety. Vietnam is one of Subaru’s fastest-growing markets worldwide.”
In that context, Subaru Vietnam has taken steps to demonstrate its commitment to expansion in the Vietnamese market. In 2018, Subaru only had 7 authorized dealers nationwide and sold a total of 117 cars throughout the year. Now, the number of Subaru dealers has increased to 17 branches from north to south, representing a 143% increase in dealerships in the past 5 years. Meanwhile, annual Subaru car sales have increased by over 15 times.
Subaru Saigon – Gò Vấp Branch functions as a distributor of new Subaru vehicles, providing genuine parts, and offering after-sales services including painting and repairs according to Subaru Japan Group’s rigorous standards. With a total area of nearly 2,500m2, this new facility is over 1,000m2 larger than the previous business location, with a well-arranged space for display, waiting room, and services, providing comfort for customers.
Subaru Saigon Service Center – Gò Vấp Branch provides full after-sales services including vehicle repairs and maintenance, painting, supplying genuine Subaru parts and accessories. The Service Center is equipped with 2 modern paint rooms. The new Subaru Saigon – Gò Vấp Service Center can serve more than 30 customers per day with the highest quality and standards of Subaru worldwide, thereby providing the best experience and convenience for customers in Gò Vấp District and surrounding areas.
Mr. Philip Lu added: “To better serve Subaru customers in Vietnam, Motor Image is also investing in a 3,500m2 facility in Hanoi, expected to be operational in the first quarter of next year. This facility will serve as the headquarters for Subaru in the northern region, including a showroom showcasing new cars with all functions, and a large-scale service workshop equipped with the most advanced maintenance, repair, and painting equipment. It will also serve as a supply hub for spare parts and new cars for Subaru in the northern region.”
