Lloyd Kia Carlisle open the doors at their new showroom

Company News

Lloyd Kia Carlisle have officially unveiled their new showroom to the public after 7 months of construction and redevelopment.

They have remained open throughout the process, using alternative premises at Lloyd AllRoad and Lloyd Used Car Centre 300 yards away, but can now welcome back customers to a renewed, eco-conscious site on Grearshill Road, Kingstown.

The showroom features Kia’s latest dealer experience and brand identity, currently being rolled out across the global Kia dealer network with separate zones for customers and car displays. With greener technology implemented throughout the building, the massive investment continues to display the Lloyd confidence in the Kia franchise. 

Sam Lloyd, Managing Director at Lloyd Motor Group said:

“We are delighted with this major development at Kia Carlisle. The new facility looks fantastic and further displays our commitment to the Kia brand, which is growing from strength to strength.”

The design of the new showroom has totally transformed the Grearshill Road site.

It now offers more room and a spacious layout. Wooden features provide a warm and inviting atmosphere with a comfortable waiting area and multiple sales desks to assist more customers.

There has also been investment into the Aftersales side of the business. The state-of-the-art workshop now has doubled capacity with inbuilt tool stations, a new parts department, and a brand-new purpose-built valeting bay. This investment in Aftersales is testament to the increased presence in Cumbria with Kia now being the best-selling retail and fleet brand in Carlisle according to national data.

Roy Holliday, Head of Business at Lloyd Kia Carlisle added:

“We are really excited to welcome customers back to our Grearshill home. The new showroom is amazing and such a huge change from the old building. With Kia being one of the most successful manufacturers in the market today, it is fantastic to have facilities that reflect this. With upcoming products due in 2024 including the phenomenal EV9, the exciting EV3 and many more, there has never been a better time to be involved with the Kia brand.

“I would personally like to thank all staff and customers for their patience in the last 7 months. It is always difficult to run such a big operation alongside a huge development but all staff have accepted the challenge and have shown real character in adapting to the situation. We hope all customers will forgive any inconvenience when they see the new showroom. I look forward to welcoming you all personally.
