Porsche India has appointed EVM Premium Cars India Pvt. Ltd. as its eighth dealer in India and the first in the state of Kerala. This appointment marks another addition to the rapidly growing Porsche network, since the relaunch of its retail operations in India last year.
With the announcement of the Kochi dealership, the city will join seven retail entities by Porsche India in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. In all of these locations, customers will see the opening of world-class Porsche Centres in the coming months, with the first facility planned to open in Mumbai in August.
On the newest addition to the network, Anil Reddi, Director of Porsche India, says: “Kochi is home to a strong entrepreneurial spirit and the awareness of Porsche amongst our prospective customers is promising. We are pleased to announce our upcoming presence in this vibrant market and look forward to serving discerning automotive enthusiasts not only in the commercial capital of Kerala, but in the entire state.”
With a contemporary facility to be located in the thriving automotive hub of Kochi Bypass Maradu, the new Porsche Centre Kochi is poised to open up the luxury sports car market in the state. Work on the new showroom is set to begin in September this year with an opening envisaged for mid-2014. For the interim, Porsche will be working out of a temporary facility at Kalamassery starting in August.
Sabu Johny, Managing Director, EVM Premium Cars India Pvt. Ltd., says: “It is an honour to represent one of the world’s most iconic automotive brands in Kerala. We are proud to partner with Porsche India; together, we aim to provide a unique ownership experience that the brand is renowned for. We look forward to the official launch of the brand’s presence in our state in August.”
