Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) is pleased to announce the opening of Geely Quezon Avenue, its second Geely outlet in the country managed by its dealer partner, the Autohub Group. The launch of the Geely Quezon Avenue comes 9 months after the Geely brand was launched in the Philippines. The Quezon Avenue showroom was originally slated to open last March but was delayed due to the community quarantine brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

SGAP President & CEO Mikihisa Takayama warmly welcomed the Autohub Group to the Geely family. “This partnership is a huge step forward in SGAP and Geely’s goal to be a major player in the Philippine automotive industry. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the Autohub Group for trusting and choosing Geely to be part of their growing automotive brand portfolio,” Takayama said.
