PROSPECT REEF, Tortola, VI - The territory's newest vehicle dealership, Tortola Auto Group (TAG), will soon be opening for business as the official agent for top of the line Hyundai vehicles but has already teamed up with Scotiabank VI to offer sweet deals on new models from the South Korean auto giant.

Construction work is currently ongoing in Prospect Reef, Tortola for the intended location of the operations, expected to comprise vehicle sales showroom and a service centre.

The new dealership is said to be the official Hyundai dealer in the territory and has a raft of 2016 year models available for customers.

The flagship vehicle of the lot of new models is said to be the 2016 Hyundai Tucson, a mid-sized sports utility wagon which offers comfort and amenities for the driver who cares about not only style and performance but also fuel efficiency.

Though this category of vehicle is hotly contested by the likes of Nissan, Kia, Mazda and Mitsubishi among others, the Tucson stands out in its sleek design and sharp lines that scream performance and style.

As its opening is imminent, the business is already getting its face out there in the form of its new vehicles on display in front of Scotiabank on DeCastro Street every business day with information on rates and conditions for financing posted on the vehicle windows.

Information received by this news site indicates that Scotiabank VI will be working with TAG to provide financing for the displayed vehicles.

Positions open

At a recent job fair in Capoon's Bay in the First District, TAG accepted names of job seeking youth of that district to register them with a view to hiring once suited for positions available.

According to an advertisement placed online recently, the company is seeking an Operations Manager, Parts Manager, Parts Sales Representative, Data Entry Clerk, Stock Room Worker, Sales Manager, Accounts Clerk, Cashier, Auto Body Repairer and Car Wash Attendant/Handyman.

One of the principals behind the venture is businesswoman Patricia M. Romney. However, she indicated that the company directors were not ready to reveal details of the investment just yet.

"I discussed with my group and unfortunately as I had said we have a scheduled roll out which we wish to adhere to. I can assure you will be duly informed of our plans and schedule accordingly," said Ms Romney when contacted by our newsroom.

    High-end what dealer? Start looking for a high-end piece of land to put your generation. You think you could live in cars, parner? By the way, the Hyundai is competitive with Kia, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, all the others. Test drive one up a hill, man.

    Just what we don't need another car dealership. I though the no franchise rules was in effect. I'm going to bring McDonald's here if we can do car dealership franchises, why not restaurants?

    two things were not thought out. 1) location is making prospect reef an industrial area. How are we going to turn it into a tourist destination? 2) we do not need more cars on the island, especially a franchise. We haven't figured out public transportation to deal with congestion yet. Now every family heading for the three-car garage? We haven't even gotten rid of the rusted junk taking space on private property that looks tacky- ratty. Something this big is not necessary.

    Let's wake up people. It's more important to have immovable assets than cars.
    Let's have our priority right as caribbean people.

      I congratulate Patty on her business venture. It's up to me to buy, or not to buy. I'm into securing house and land, but why should that stop anyone else from doing business. She's not forcing anyone to buy a car.

    What the island needs is a car dealership that is modern and updated with proper service. Thank you TAG. Hope you have a showroom and i do t have to stand in the sun to buy a product. For those talking about franchies need to understand how dealerships work. International Motors sell certain vehicles because they have been appointed the official dealers for those brands. N..bs probably lost the franchise and maybe that is why this new company is offering 5 years warranty instead of 2 years. This is 2016, businesses have to step up in this competitive world. People complain about RTW prices but they still pull up to shop there because the service is good and the products are not all over the place. Again I urge businesses to step into 2016.

      If you think that TAG will be providing 'proper service' think you will be very disappointed....

    Technically, "the brothers" can aslo sell hyundai also because Kia and hyundai is one company. Interesting though. Fascinating to see how this will work out esp on a tiny island like ours. However business is business more employment
