More Choice for City Motorists
Banks Long & Co has acted on behalf of motoring company Charles Warner and leased part of its Outer Circle Road site to the fast-growing Pentagon Motor Group.
Pentagon is delighted to be building on its early success in the city and long-standing Charles Warner said it will continue to be a force on the motoring front, so it looks a winning move all round.
Derby-headquartered Pentagon Group, which is leasing about half of the three-acre site from Charles Warner will be employing 20 people at the site (including some staff who will be relocating from its current, overcrowded site on Tritton Road).
Pentagon will be the new name for Mitsubishi in the city, with the launch of a state-of-the-art showroom on Outer Circle Road.
Pentagon is also moving its Renault and Dacia business (currently based at Tritton Road) to Outer Circle Road in late April. This will follow a complete refurbishment of an existing showroom.
The new facility will house five Mitsubishi vehicles, including favourites from the range including class-leading 4x4s, seven-seater family SUVs and popular city crossover.
Pentagon expects its new Renault and Dacia showroom to house 12 vehicles. The site will also stock Renault commercial vehicles, plus it has also been appointed an official Renault Motorsport dealership.
There will be space for about 80 approved used cars and commercial vehicles, across the new site.
General Manager Andy Finch said: “The new Mitsubishi, Renault and Dacia dealerships in Lincoln are full of potential. I’m excited about the future for all of the brands.
“We have been listening to our customers ever since we first arrived in Lincoln six months ago and it’s quickly become clear that we’ve outgrown the Tritton Road site.
“The imminent move of Renault and Dacia to this new location, together with the new showroom for the outstanding new Mitsubishi range is great news for everyone.”
Pentagon’s expansion in Lincoln, along with the new dealerships it opened in the second half of 2015, means it will now have 31 franchise points.
