The team at Channel Mag love it when local businesses are achieving great things, and one such business is North Shore’s new Peugeot and Citroën motor vehicle dealership in Wairau Road. They have been setting all sorts of records for sales of both new and pre-owned vehicles during 2021.
The dealership is part of Miles Motor Group, a group that represents a wide range of vehicle manufacturers right across New Zealand. Other vehicle brands under the Miles Group umbrella include Mercedes Benz (here on the Shore), VW, Skoda, Lexus and Nissan.
The Peugeot and Citroën North Shore operation is managed by GM Ben Panettiere. He is supported by a team that includes vehicle sales specialists Michael Meredith and Rikus Van Staden, business manager Naomi Battles, parts/service advisor Jackson Baas and vehicle groomer Geoffrey Larsen.
“Our offer is a boutique car buying experience,” explained Ben Panettiere when we visited the operation in mid-May. “Customers clearly appreciate the fact that we are a boutique dealership as well as the quality of the vehicles, as we have sold in excess of 40 vehicles monthly in recent months, which is very pleasing. Sales have been building and have doubled over pre-Covid 2019 levels.”
Ben and his team have the line-up of new Peugeot and Citroën vehicles (11 options and growing) as well as a constantly changing range of 25-30 used vehicles, priced from just $12,000. The day we visited the pre-owned vehicle stock included a Mazda 2 for $12,000 through to a late model Range Rover worth over $100,000.
The Peugeot range of new vehicles includes three cars (Peugeot 208, 308 and 508), three SUV’s (Peugeot 2008, 3008, 5008) and the Peugeot Expert Van. A plug-in hybrid version of the Peugeot 3008 SUV has also just landed. In September/October this year three totally electric Peugeot options will arrive with a 300 plus kilometre range. These are the Peugeot E208 car, E2008 SUV and E-Expert Van. This electric range is priced from $60,000 – exciting times!
The new Citroën range – priced from $29,990 – includes three vehicle options: the Citroën C3 car, C3 Aircross SUV and C5 Aircross SUV. The end of the year will see the arrival of a Citroën C4 plug-in hybrid, and a Citroën C5 plug-in hybrid. Also coming are a range of fully electric Citroën vehicles.
“With both Peugeot and Citroën we have a great range of new vehicles to offer our customers,” adds Ben. “Cars, SUVs and a great van. We are super excited about the plug-in hybrid and fully electric options the both brands are bringing to the market. This will provide further reasons for North Shore people to drive these well proven and reliable European vehicles.
“We are also excited about the iOWN intelligent car ownership option that we have available for all new Peugeot and Citroën customers. This makes it very easy and affordable to drive a new vehicle with three very clear options at the end of the term. Choose a new vehicle and iOWN that, keep the vehicle by paying out the guaranteed future value, or just give the vehicle back. This is explained further in the issue.”
