With a record 1.86% share of the new vehicle market in the UK for the whole year in 2011 and with confidence in the brand at its highest ever level, SEAT has either recently opened or is set to launch seven new outlets, all in key strategic locations.

The group already represents SEAT's sister brands Audi, Skoda and Volkswagen.On the other hand, the Essex Auto Group has opened its second SEAT franchise in Thurrock's massive Lakeside retail complex. The Group's first SEAT dealership is thriving in Southend-on-Sea.

Moreover, the SEAT retailer Dales opened a new showroom on Newquay's outskirts at its existing site just off the A30 near Redruth, further enhancing the brand's image in the South West.The new dealerships come hot-on-the-heels of two other launches in key areas.
