Hyundai i-Space opens at SM City Marilao January 18, 2018 HYUNDAI Baliwag, one of the four Hyundai dealerships under the Laus Group of Companies (LGC), opened on January 17 its first-ever mall showroom, making the Korean carmaker’s passenger vehicle more accessible and convenient to the local motoring public than ever before. Strategically located at the Ground Level of SM City Marilao in Bulacan, the 74-square-meter facility aptly called Hyundai i-Space can easily hold two unit displays. It also features a comfortable lounge that acts as inquiry and consultation area for aspiring car owners. According to LGC Chairman and CEO Levy P. Laus, just like traditional showrooms, customers are always invited inside to take the time to see and feel the actual unit and immerse themselves in the bespoke buying experience. “Here in i-Space, customers are always welcome to sit in the vehicles, get sales information, and book a test drive. I believe that shifting into shopping malls is just one innovation in changing the way people purchase a car. This new facility will help provide the brand plenty of exposure as we give prospective clients more options in buying their dream vehicle,” he said. He said he is positive that the satellite display area will further demonstrate the company’s commitment to deliver its products in the easiest and friendliest way possible. “Marilao is not new to us because we have other dealerships in the area. We are very happy of the results of our businesses here. Given that, we are confident that with Hyundai’s excellent line-up of vehicles and our expert sales team ready to assist everyone who walks in, this place will address a lot of personal motoring requirements of the people of Marilao and nearby towns and urban centers of Bulacan,” he noted. For his part, Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (Hari) Regional Sales Manager Ramon Chito Osorio, lent his full support to the new showroom which he noted is the fourth i-Space in the country to date, following the successful launch of the concept last 2017. Hari is the official distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines. “On behalf of Hari, I’d like to congratulate the Laus Group for opening your first i-Space showroom here at SM City Marilao. This new milestone is just the beginning of a fruitful 2018 for HARI and the Laus Group,” he said. “We are excited to be part of the launch of your second i-Space showroom in Malolos, Bulacan, as well as the soon-to-rise commercial vehicle dealership in Clark, Pampanga. With these expansion plans, we are confident that you will help us further expand Hyundai’s presence and strengthen our positioning as the trusted mobility partner of customers in North Luzon,” he added. Laus said the construction of the Hyundai Clark Commercial Trucks and Buses in Pampanga will be completed in April this year. Other Hyundai dealerships operated by the auto conglomerate include Hyundai Dagupan, Hyundai Baliwag, Hyundai La Union, and Hyundai San Nicolas in Laoag, Ilocos Norte.
