Bristol Street Motors – one of the UK’s best-known automotive retailers – has opened its second new Renault and Dacia dealership in the space of six months.


The new franchise in Mansfield is Bristol Street’s sixth Renault and Dacia outlet and further strengthens the long-standing partnership between Renault Group UK and the dealer group’s parent company, Vertu Motors.

The group’s new Renault outlet in Nottingham opened in March and Bristol Street Motors’ other Renault dealerships are located in Bradford, Derby, Exeter and Gloucester.


The new Mansfield site is the latest of a number of Renault and Dacia dealerships to have been opened across the UK in the past 12 months, helping Renault Group UK meet the growth and market share aspirations set out in its GO5+ strategy.


Robert Forrester, CEO of Vertu Motors, said: “We are delighted to further strengthen our long and successful relationship with Renault Group UK with the opening of this new dealership in Mansfield.


“We are also very pleased to secure our position as the number one Renault and Dacia retailer in the East Midlands and we see a very bright future ahead.


“Now we look forward to delivering the very best experience of Renault and Dacia models alongside Bristol Street Motors’ commitment to excellent customer service to customers in and around Mansfield.”

Darren Payne, Sales Director, Renault Group UK, said: “The opening of this latest dealership is the direct result of the great success Bristol Street Motors has enjoyed at its five other Renault and Dacia sites.


“The new dealership gives both brands stronger representation and better visibility across the East Midlands – another significant step towards hitting the targets we set ourselves in our GO5+ strategy for sustainable growth.”


He added: “We’re also delighted that such an important and well respected dealer group so clearly shares our confidence in the future of both Renault and Dacia in the UK in the years to come.”
