Mar 07, 2013– Rolle, Switzerland (Techreleased) – Infiniti is enlarging its dealer network in eastern Switzerland with a new dealership in St. Gallen. With the Infiniti Centre St. Gallen, the premium car manufacturer takes the next step within an ambitious growth plan. Accompanied by an enlarged product line-up this will lead to a significant extension of the dealer network and brand awareness in Europe.
During the second media day at the Geneva Motor Show, Infiniti and Auto Zollikofer AG signed the contract on the Infiniti stand. The new dealer partner is looking back on more than 65 years of experience in automobile business in St. Gallen. The family enterprise represents the French brand Peugeot since its foundation. As an Infiniti reseller, Auto Zollikofer AG will get access to the premium segment and will offer a wider range of products in the future.
“Infiniti is a brand attracting attention not only with extraordinary vehicle design, modern technology and inspired performance. As a quite young premium brand, Infiniti could already create a strong image that exceeds the vehicles and also the outstanding customer service,” says Rolf Zollikofer, owner of Auto Zollikofer AG. “We are convinced to meet the customer needs with our committed team and are looking forward to representing Infiniti in the future.”
“Never before has our model range been so comprehensive. With the launch of the news sports saloon Q50 and its enlarged engine line-up, Infiniti Centre St. Gallen will offer a versatile and attractive range of products. We are confident to have Auto Zollikofer AG as a competent partner at our side, to expand our position within the European premium segment in the future,” says Christian Blank, Infiniti Director Central Europe.
The official opening of the new Infiniti Centre St. Gallen is planned for September 2013, in time for the launch of the new sports saloon Infiniti Q50, which was unveiled during Geneva Motor Show for the first time in Europe. On the occasion of the upcoming Auto Show St. Gallen, Auto Zollikofer AG will have the pleasure for the first time to present a selection of Infiniti models. The IREDI showroom (Infiniti Retail Environment Design Initiative) will be configured to offer all advantages of Infiniti’s exclusive design program: high-class interior materials, classy furniture and modern architecture. Infiniti showrooms remind more of the lobby of a boutique hotel than of a car dealership showroom – the ideal surrounding for Total Ownership Experience, an extraordinary customer service program by Infiniti and Zollikofer.
