Vaux­hall ter­mi­nates deal­er­ship con­tracts

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

VAUX­HALL is to scale back its deal­er­ships amid fall­ing sales and changes in the way mo­torists buy cars.

The brand will is­sue let­ters to all its UK deal­er­ships at the end of April giv­ing two years’ no­tice that it is ter­mi­nat­ing their con­tracts.

It is de­cid­ing which of the deal­ers to of­fer new terms.

Vaux­hall’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor De­nis Chick said the car maker will change the re­mu­ner­a­tion process for deal­ers and in­tro­duce new stan­dards to bet­ter re­flect the chang­ing mar­ket, as con­sumers do more re­search on­line.

He said: “We will prob­a­bly lose a few re­tail­ers,” but de­nied re­ports that a third could be cut.

Vaux­hall has the sec­ond largest num­ber of deal­er­ships in the UK af­ter Ford, with 326.

Mr Chick added: “No­body will lose their jobs.”
