Lookers has opened its £6 million new and used vehicle multi-franchise hub in Middlesbrough. Located off Cargo Fleet Lane and South Bank Road, the site is also home to dealerships for Ford and BYD.

As well as multi-franchise vehicle sales, the centre will focus on all-electric driving and also specialises is in service and maintenance, and cosmetic repair.

Duncan McPhee, Lookers’ COO, said: “Lookers Car HUB in Middlesbrough is an exciting new concept – a one stop shop where customers can buy a quality new or used vehicle, book in for repair work for any car brand, recharge or refuel their car, and learn about the future of sustainable motoring.

“With space for more than 300 cars, an onsite workshop and Middlesbrough’s first EV Experience Centre packed with resources, we’re proud to be leading the charge for a greener, more sustainable future in Teesside and the wider area.”

The 25,500 sq.m. sustainable car retail concept includes six 150kW EV rapid chargers, capable of providing a 100-kilometre range in six minutes.

The new EV charging hub, which can power up to 480 cars a single day, is open 24 hours a day. Information and test drives are available at the EV Experience Centre.

With this investment, Lookers will help Middlesbrough Council achieve its ambition of becoming net carbon neutral by 2029.
