Aston Martin to Open New China Dealership

By Paul Joseph

As a further sign of Aston Martin’s attempts to make inroads into emerging markets, the British carmaker will open a brand new flagship dealership in Wuhan, China later this year.

The two-floor showroom will welcome customers from the centre of China to browse a state-of-the-art display of Aston Martin’s product range and make use of a new, full function service workshop.

Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province in Central China, a region that is enjoying strong economic growth. With excellent transport links, Wuhan sits equidistant between Beijing and Guangzhou, and has been projected to be China’s third largest city economy by 2025, returning to its traditional status as one of China’s premier cities.

Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer, said: “Since opening our first dealership here in 2011, Aston Martin has made good progress in China. This will become an important market for our new SUV, the Aston Martin DBX, when it goes into production next year.

“I’m delighted with the location of the new Wuhan dealership in the heart of the city’s central business district and I look forward to coming back in the Autumn for the grand opening.”

The new Wuhan dealership forms part of a larger network expansion for Aston Martin in China, which is the fastest growing market for the British luxury carmaker.
