British automaker Jaguar Land Rover and its local partner Capital Automotive Ltd have opened the luxury sports car manufacturer’s new dealership in Yangon.
Capital Automotive Ltd has completed the dealership with an eight-car showroom and 13-bay workshop with factory certified technicians, the company said.
The opening of the new showroom, service and parts facility means this will be the first time Land Rover and Jaguar products will be officially sold in Myanmar, bringing the products together under one roof in a dedicated Jaguar Land Rover dealership.
U Khin Tun, managing director, Capital Automotive Ltd, said: “We are now open to serve our elite group of customers offering an exciting range of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles in Myanmar.”
He said many customers who have visited have expressed interest in the new Land Rover and Jaguar range, particularly the All-New Range Rover, Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar XF.
“I am sure we will soon see many of these new Land Rover and Jaguar models on the road in Myanmar. We are very confident that we will also be able to grow the Jaguar Land Rover business here.”
The dealership introduced customers with the all-new Range Rover Sport and the Jaguar F-Type at the showroom opening ceremony.
Andrew Patrick, ambassador of the UK to Myanmar, “I am delighted that Jaguar Land Rover has decided to expand their global operations to this country. They are an example of British engineering and manufacturing at its very best; they produce top quality products, employ and train local people to international standards and deliver the highest levels of customer service.
“I am looking forward to seeing this famous British brand in this country.”
The price for Land Rovers will range from $100,000 to $330,000 and Jaguar models between $149,000 and $250,000.
In April, the authorities announced a new tax relief program that would enable traders and buyers of high-end and luxury cars to save significant amount of money in registration fees. Buyers of high-class cars will be able to save up to K20 million ($20,600), according to the new regulations of Myanmar Road Transport Administration Department (RTAD).
