SLANEY, Tortola, VI- A hundred is a milestone in anything but to have sold a 100 cars in four months since it began operation in November 2015 in the Virgin Islands was extra reason for Tortola Auto Group (TAG) to celebrate.

Augustus Pond and his Fiancee Jeaner A. Barry purchased a blue 2016 fully loaded Hyundai Tucson, incidentally at the recent ‘Sweetheart Deals’ Valentine Sales Event.

TAG has grown ‘tremendously’

Senior Sales and Marketing Executive at TAG, Gordon U. French said the sale of its 100th vehicle is remarkable achievement  for Tortola Auto Group, a new company that started operation officially in November at Slaney Point.

“It has grown tremendously. Since then TAG has opened up its Parts and Accessories Store and recently opened its Service Centre.”

Managing Director of TAG, Patricia M. Romney said the company honours its 100th customer and noted that Mr Pond is actually a long time friend of hers. She said their choice of vehicle was very suitable for their young family.

“We hope you are going to enjoy it for many years to come…We are happy you were our 100th customer and we look forward to having many more occasions like this in the not too distant future.”

TAG doing ‘fantastic job’

Also present at the event was Insurance Manager of Nagico Insurances BVI, Mr Simon Cross. Nagico is providing insurance for the new purchase of Mr Pond and Ms Barry.

“We very much hope to be hearing of its 1000th vehicle being sold. You (TAG) seem to be doing a fantastic job so far and we wish you the best of luck.”

Mr Cross also extended congratulations to Mr Pond and Ms Barry on “your fine purchase of a brand new Hyundai and we welcome you to our Nagico family…We also hope that you would enjoy our service. We can actually guarantee claim payments within 48 hours with all documentation in place. We also have a number of new benefits, including new car replacements, vanishing deductibles, and accident forgiveness,” Mr Cross assured.

Mr Pond and Ms Barry, along with their baby daughter Arianna then did the cutting of the TAG 100th Customer Cake and were also presented with a gift.

‘We love it’

Mr Pond said he was thrilled to be the 100th customer and that he was also pleased about the services Nagico is offering.

Ms Barry said she enjoyed the car sale and was fascinated with the blue Hyundai. “So far the vehicle is excellent. I am enjoying it because I have been driving it more than him (Mr Pond). It’s the first time I am driving this brand of vehicle and I am loving all the extra features. We love it. Thank you for honouring us as your 100th customer.”

      Why don't you start a bus service and stop chatting crap about too many cars. You expect the man and his family to walk while you stretch off in your big Land Rover and here chatting froth?

    That is 100 old cars off the road. Thank you TAG. Government should really impose some limitations on old cars.

        Not everyone like Hyundai, but the shopping experience at TAG is unlike anywhere else on the island. I like their showroom and the staff is very helpful. Those guys know what they are doing. If they keep that up then I would be sorry for the other dealers

    Not sure anyone should celebrate 100 more cars on our roads. Quite the reverse.

    Economic power is I will not enrich these people no longer, I recently calculated taxi cost to and from work. I also calculated it if I want to go to the beach what that will cost, you kow what? IT IS LESS THAN A HYUNDAI NOTE. Then when you google the vehicle to find true cost & realize if you pay what they asking you being robbed.

      You are clearly bent on spreading incorrect information.
      Hyundai is ranked no. 5 in the world among auto manufacturers

        Hyundai and Kia vehicles are made by the same company to the same standards - Kia sportage = Hyundai Tucson. A new Kia is about $2000 -$6000 cheaper than the corresponding Hyundai on this island.... Once the novelty has worn off TAG will need to work a bit harder.

    The people complaining about 100 more cars on the road are probably the same fools that drive from one bank to the next instead of walking...
